Cooperation to Overcome a More Powerful Adversary (2012)
Author: Kay Holekamp
The spotted hyena of Eastern Africa can engage in sophisticated cooperation to overcome a more powerful predator, the lion. This video shows how a few hyenas first come across the lions at a kill, then make vocalizations to attract more hyenas to the area, excite each other through further vocalization, touching, and gestures, and eventual form a mob that jumps the lions and chases the lions away from the kill.
