The Honey Guide Bird & The Badger
Transcript of The Honey Guide Bird & The Badger
By: Amiya W.
Symbiosis is the interaction between two different organisms in close physical association.
The type of symbiosis relationship between the two species is mutualism.
What is symbiosis?
Honey Guide Bird
The honey guide bird can locate honey in a bees' nest but is unable to get to the honey for itself, so it guides the badger to the nest. The badger cannot find the nest easily by itself but, once shown the nest by the bird, the badger can open the nest with relative ease, using its huge claws. The badger eats the honey it wants and the bird feeds on the remains. This is an example of a symbiotic relationship. It is also sometimes called mutualism.
What Would Happen?
If the honey guide bird were to be eliminated the badger would not be able to find the nest. If the badger will not be able to find the nest it wont be able to eat. If the badger were to be eliminated the honey guide bird will not be able to get into the nest. If the honey guide bird cannot get into the nest it wont be able to eat as well.
