Wild dog hunts have an impressive success rate, and much of that depends on the coordination of the whole pack. Thanks to their complex vocalizations and close social ties, carnivores can reach a level of cooperative hunting that cannot be matched by larger predators such as lions.
In the group, each member is built for endurance hunting – from keen senses and toned muscles to strong jaws and teeth specialized for cutting and crushing bones.
