Solitary Versus Social Animals

319

While going on safari, we crossed paths with a solitary buffalo and were advised to keep our distance since the animal might be sick and therefore dangerous, being separated from his herd. This is but one example of the many species who live in groups. But a solitary lifestyle is nothing unusual for other animals. Species living in herds versus loners.
