Mammal’s brains are more complex than those of other animals, so they can figure things out better. Things like, If I stand over here alone, somebody could probably eat my ass and nobody’d even notice. On the other hand, if I hang with my homies, somebody gonna notice a big damn wolf at some point and scream like a little girl. Then we all take off in different directions and that poor sumbitch be like, “Aaah! Which one? Which one do I chase? They all look so… damn… they’re gone.”
Then we all meet up again at the water hole, and laugh ourselves silly. Yeah, I’m all over that shit.
“Hey, Yo! Get your grass munchin’ ass over here and watch my back!”

Meanwhile, over in the wolf den …
“Hey. Hey. C’mere. Those frickin’ buffalo are right up on my last damn nerve. What say we posse up, surround their fat asses, and see who’s laughin’ at the water hole tonight, eh?”
Thus we form herds, packs, tribes, villages, unions, and megacorps.
If you’ve ever watched even one nature video, though, you know that’s not the end of the story.
