  • Éditeur québécois

Some species prefer to live alone, and others like company. Social animals form groups such as clans or schools and use their combined strength to fight enemies, cold or boredom. Their giant gatherings can last for a few hours, a few days or even a few years. Secret societies are revealed, explained and illustrated, to help you better understand the social lives of animals.
