When twins saw a sighting of the Beast, Ralph wanted to call an assembly, but he was afraid to blow the conch so he raised it as a signal instead. Fear has got the boys thinking that the Beast is a big scary clawing monster that is hard to find because he doesn’t leave tracks. The fear of the Beast kind of fuels the boys to go hunting and searching for it.
