Why not chimpanzees, lions, and hyenas too?

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/Debate


Examples are cited of group hunting in chimpanzees, lions, and hyenas consistent with evidence for intentionality, organization, and coordination. These challenge the claim for shared intentionality as uniquely human. Even when rarely performed in this way, the significance of such behaviors should not be minimized, especially if this level of "intelligent" action emerges spontaneously in the wild.
