Dive deep into the world of group predation with a look at twelve different species that use teamwork, strategy and communication to hunt more effectively than they otherwise would be able to alone.
Sitting high atop the food chain, these are the killers that even predators fear: the apex predators. These spectacular creatures have won the carnivore's lottery and are used to getting their way.
From claws and teeth to chemical warfare and sonic power, predators have evolved specific weapons that make them efficient killing machines. These species show what it takes to survive and thrive.
These fantastic creatures take everyday abilities to the extreme. Some have powers far removed from the usual. In the battle of life and death, these predators have the advantage of a wild card.
In just about every animal struggle, there's a winner and a loser. The stakes are often life or death. The motives for combat are varied, but they usually boil down to this: food, territory or sex.
