Some animals live in packs which means that they live together. There are both benefits and drawbacks to living together in a pack and living independently. When you live together in a pack, you must find food for everyone in the pack. Also, weak animals are usually not allowed to join or remain in the pack and they would be tossed aside.
So, it is important to stay strong and contribute to the pack. Another drawback would be that usually a predator will not attack animals that are in a pack because there are too many of them. Female cheetahs are known for wandering by themselves. This may be because they have to find food and they don’t want to try to find food for the pack.
