Title An example of commensalism - A zebra and an egret
Description
Cattle egrets foraging in fields among cattle or other livestock is an example of commensalism. As cattle, horses and other livestock graze on the field, they cause movements that stir up various insects. As the insects are stirred up, the cattle egrets following the livestock catch and feed upon them. The egrets benefit from this relationship because the livestock have helped them find their meals, while the livestock are typically unaffected by it. Thanks ☆ORION★ [Wikipedia.org]
