Transcript of Symbiotic Relationship
designed by Péter Puklus for Prezi
A symbiotic realtionship
A symbiotic relationship is a relationship of mutual benefit or dependence.
An example of a symbiotic relationship is like the coyote and american badger. They have a mutualistic relationship.
Common/Scientific name: Coyote/ Canis latrans
Living area: Found throughout North and central america. Ranging throughout Panama, Mexico, and moves up as far as Alaska.
Consuming type: Predator/ carnivore
Food sources: They eat small mammals such as voles, prarie dogs, etc.
Unlike the grey wolf, the coyote evolved in North America. They readily reproduce in metropolitan areas.
Common/Scientific name: American Badger/Taxidea Taxus
Living Area: Found in Western and central United States. Prefers areas with sandy loam soils.
Food Sources: Ground squirrels, moles, voles, etc.
American badgers do not hibernate but they become less active in the winter. They are normally found in treeless areas.
Coyote are not very effective at digging rodents out of their burrows so the american badger helps it out with that. And in contrast american badgers are not very fast runners so the coyote helps it out with that.
They benifit from eachother when they hunt. When they hunt together, the two animals leave very little for prey in the area. But also the coyote feeds on the american badger.
If the relationship stopped then the consumed of the coyote would increase and same for the badger. The badger community would also decrease.
