Lions, wolves & many other species have been selected to live & hunt in prides,
packs, etc. which evidently give them a survival advantage. Yet tigers & other
cats are famously solitary hunters & have surved as long as lions, suggesting
that somehow that behavior also has survival advantage. This seems
contradictory to the theory of natural selection.
