A group of lions is called a pride. The females hunt and the males protect their territory. When they make a hunt the dominant male eats first, then the other males, then the females and finally the cubs. An average pride has 4-20 females with cubs and 2-4 males.
A family of meerkats is called a colony. They all hunt and forage and share the babysitting of the dominant females pups. There is a dominant female and male and all the other members are extended family. Only the lead female is allowed to have pups and if another female has them she could kill the other female's pups.
