The reason why I am asking is because a friend and I got in a debate over if there is a difference between pack animals and social animals. My arguement is, Social is defined as: "tending to form cooperative and interdependent relationships with others of one's kind". Pack is defined as: "a group of often predatory animals of the same kind". So they would not be the same, he says The single unit within the pack still interacts with others, and thus they are still social animals. Also that Pack animals are social animals. Social animals are pack animals. And i debunked that with "then All pack animals are social animals and all social animals are pack animals. So who is right?
Re: Is a Social animal the same as a animal that travels in a pack.
