Aggression/Competition

Definition

Aggressive behavior is when an animal is actually or potentially harming another animal. Animals will show aggression when a predator is near. Competitive behavior is when animals fight or have "competitions" to get valued resources or to see who is more dominant.

Bears

Usually Bears are shy creatures, but when felt threatened they will get very aggressive. For example if their cubs are wondering around and another bear approaches them the mother bear will chase them away or even fight them.

Lions

When in the wild you can't just go buy food from the store so animals such as the lion have to compete to get valued resources. For example if there was a lion hunting a dear and took it down another lion will come and try to steal the meal away.
