Cooperative hunting between species

Cooperative hunting among individuals of the same species is common. But, cooperative hunting between different species is incredibly rare. Ed Yong has an interesting story on cooperative hunting between moray eels and grouper. Although this behaviour was first documented in 2006, there is a new study that describes a previously undocumented behaviour that the grouper uses to recruit its hunting partners.
