Predatory aggression is shown by animals when they attack their natural prey. In this sense it may be regarded as part of food gathering behaviour and not true aggression. In this context it is related to hunting behaviour and a broader repetoire of behaviours

As to whether man is subject to such motivational forces is arguable and ideas of man the hunter and the predatory male etc perhaps cloud the issue.
