For me, one of the most interesting things in nature is symbiosis - two separate organisms that have adapted to each other and are now benefiting each other. They're working together and this is known as mutualism, it's a win-win situation.
The first example that comes to mind is often the oxpecker and the rhino, but have you heard about the warthog and the mongoose? Or perhaps the ant and the Acacia tree?
There are many other mutualistic relationships occuring in nature that you may not have heard of before. This week, Elly unearths some of the fascinating ways animals and plants are joining forces.
