In the animal kingdom being a member of a group can mean the difference between life (dinner) and death (being the main entree). Prey animals use their numbers to their particular advantage - flocking flamingos confuse a hyena just as fast-moving shoals of fish evade a hunting sealion. The tables are turned when wolves, killer whales and wild dogs work together to bring down their prey.
