The twins first see the beast from the air. Their exaggerated description of big "claws" and "heath"put fear into the boys. They shudder at the prospect of a real beast and resolve to stay below. Eventually the boys gather the courage to search for it. In numbers there is power and this group feels a sense of safety. Jack's bravado also brings them together under the illusion of strength. The "weak" boys are left behind, namely Piggy and the "littluns."
