animal, dispatching it more rapidly in the process.
It is interesting though, but I can't recall even the bird species that uses
cooperative ways of hunting. A pair of eagles maybe? The inteligence of
birds (the closest relatives to dinosaurs), however, shouldn't be
underestimated (the capabilities of parrots and crows are quite impressive).
