But I think we can also say animales gregarios to mean animals that live in groups.
Aristotle referred to/defined us as "political animals" with much the same sense." What about "herd instinct"? (then one might say "human beings have strong herd instincts ...").

At first I thought you meant pack animal as in bestia de carga, but now I see what you mean.

I think I'd say:

Los seres humanos andan in jaurías (como los lobos/animales),...

But I think we can also say animales gregarios to mean animals that live in groups.
