Transcript of Sahara Desert- Symbiotic Relationships, Predation & Competition

Symbiotic Relationships, Predation & Competition Predation Mutualism Parasitism Commensalism Symbiotic Relationships The Nile crocodile and Egyptian plover. Here the crocodile will open its mouth wide open for the birds to enter. These birds will then feed on the leeches found in the crocodile’s blood thereby getting its daily dose of food supply. The crocodile on the other hands can save itself from the blood sucking parasites. Creosote Bush and Holly Shrub. The creosote bush uses the holly shrub as a shade, wherein the holly shrub remains unaffected and gets nothing in return.
Desert Mistletoe and Desert Willow Tree. Desert Mistletoes grow on Desert Willow Trees and extracts nutrients from it. When the mistletoe grows and requires more nutrients than the willow provides, the willow tree dies. The Addax Antelope is one of the most beautiful animals in the world. This antelope is classified as critically endangered, with an estimated 500 of them left in the wilderness. They are rather slow because of their size and their flat hooves, making it all the more difficult for them to run from predators such as the Horned Viper, African Wild Dogs, Saharan Cheetahs, and Spotted Hyenas. Competition Birds such as the Desert Eagle and the Nubian Bustards fight for food like the Jerboa and Kangeroo Rats Predation and Competition Bibliography http://www.buzzle.com/articles/sahara-desert-animals.html http://www.ehow.com/info_12263970_mistletoe-desert-willow.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creosote_bush http://www.angelfire.com/mo2/animals1/crocodile/nile.html http://www.buzzle.com/articles/symbiotic-relationships-in-the-desert.html
