Dog Tip of The Day, May 23

Specific behavior within a group of similar species, such as wolves or dogs is called conspecific even if there are only two members. I have been referring to this behavior as the pack drive. There are some species within the canids that do not form packs. The Red Fox is an example. They are not conspecific in that sense. So there is a new term for you. animals that prefer to live and work in packs are conspecific.
