You can find multiple skeletons without the animals necessarily being
social. It could very well be a sleight of hand of preservation.
Of course, it's entirely possible that they DID congregate without
complex social relationships. Marine iguanas and many other animals do.
Doesn't support the pack-hunting scenario at all, though.
