Buffalo and Heron always together




The buffalo and cattle egret partnership is a marriage of convenience. The buffalo allows the stowaway because it takes out the ticks and flies from its hairy body. The heron gets to eat other stuff disturbed by the grazing of this huge animal.

  1. These bondings of different animals/birds for convenience is quite a thing to study! It seems egrets follow all herbivores, i saw a flock following an elephant herd in discovery/nat geo. Most probably they eat the insects these herbivore herds provoke to fly as they graze or the small rodents/animals that show up due to that grazing.
