A third year dance student named Betsy asked me to do a poster for a show she has choreographed. It is inspired by the life cycle of the Pacific Salmon.

An animal partnership 3

Hippos and Barbel fish have an interesting relationship. After feeding all night on land the Hippos come down into the river and the Barbel fish come along and give them a spa treatment: dental and skincare. They also enjoy the Hippo's dung. The barbel fish get a large amount of nutrition from this.

The Oxpecker is a friend to all on the Savannah, they eat ticks and mites, dandruff and dead skin and blood too. By forming a partnership with Buffalo or Giraffe or which ever beast, the beast is free of pests and the bird gets the food it needs.

An animal partnership

The Chital Deer and the Grey Langur monkey have a system in order to keep themselves safe. The threat is the tiger and together they warn each other of such danger, the deer with their enormous ears; listen. And the langurs, sitting in the trees watch for movement in the grass. If a danger is heard and seen they make warning sounds for each other and run in the other direction.
