Groupers can communicate a cooperative hunt. Hunting partner is for example toe moray, eel or the napoleon wrasse. Other animals that are known to be able to communicate a joined hunt are for instance lions, chimpanzees or killer whales, all mammals. This essay wants to discover the differences and similarities between the mammal joined hunting and the groupers. Furthermore, it wants to discover how the communicated hunting between the grouper and its hunting partner looks alike and how the grouper can give the necessary signals. Is the behaviour territorial or does it happen all over the world? Is just one grouper species able to communicate a cooperative hunting, or several? Which factors affect the tendency of a grouper to ask for joined hunting?
