A team effort
When you have a big job to do, sometimes it's easier with a little help from a friend or two!
A matter of pride
Lions are the only cats that live in a group, which is called a pride. Each lion has a role in the pride: hunting, taking care of the cubs, and protecting the territory.
Meerkats spread the work around as well. One colony member is the guard, watching for predators. Other meerkats take care of the babies, while others dig burrows and look for food.
A band of birds
Some birds also team up. Crows, ravens, and magpies form family groups to defend a territory or when nesting. Some types of pelicans will work together when hunting for food. There is even teamwork between species: chickadees and nuthatches will join forces to drive away a predator.
Bats roost together in a tree or cave for safety and to stay warm. They know there's strength in numbers! You can find out more really cool things about one species of bat, the Rodrigues fruit bat, by watching this video!
