"comfort factor"

Posted by Miri Barak on March 18, 2004

It is said about our dinosaur Pod when he encounters other kind of dinosaurs::

Luckily for them, Pod's instinct to avoid their kind is too deeply ingrained.

Feeling no *comfort factor*, he withdraws. As an added precaution, Pod puts some daylight between himself and the odd-sized animals.

My question: What does he mean by comfort factor", somehow it doen't make sense here.

Thank you very much

By the way I have a problem also with "put some daylight between himself..." but I stills have'nt try to dig into it.
