"Amazing stories of symbiosis in animals and plants"--from page one of cover.
"Heard about the fish that clean shark teeth? Or the frog that lives with a tarantula? Welcome to the weird world of symbiosis-where animals form incredible relationships. Macken Murphy, host of the popular animal podcast Species, introduces his favourite symbiotic relationships in his first kids' nonfiction book, Animal Sidekicks. Along the way he explains the cool science behind the baffling behaviour of some animals-from friendly alliances to pesky parasites. Alongside him, illustrator Dragan Kordic skillfully brings to life head-scratching relationships in nature, including: The crab that wears a sea urchin as a hat The bat that goes to bed inside a plant The warthog that likes a mongoose massage You'll even find out about symbiotic relationships including YOU! (Hint-is your head ever itchy?) By the end of the book you won't look at nature in the same way again!"-- Provided by publisher.
