Which of the following quotes from Adventures of Huckleberry Finn contains a metaphor?

A:"Look at it, gentlemen and ladies all; take a hold of it;shake it. There's a hand that was the hand of a hog; but it ain't so no more; it's the hand of a man that's started in on a new life, and'll die before he'll go back."

B: "She was a big one, and she was coming in a hurry, too, looking like a black cloud with rows of glow-worms around it; but all of a sudden she bulged out, big ans scary, with a long row of wide-open furnace doors shining like red-hot teeth, and her monstrous bows and guards hanging right over us."***

  1. Similes are comparisons that include the word "like" or "as" to make the comparison.

    Metaphors are comparisons that don't have "like" or "as" to make the comparison.

    Let me know if you decide to keep B or change to A.
