Hippo next to: fox and badger, bird and lizzard, zebra and bird, and ant

“Why does a giraffe let an oxpecker climb into its ear?” “Why does a crab wave an anemone like a pom-pom?” – Find the answers to these and other intriguing questions in this compilation of symbiotic relationships between animals big and small, on land, in the water or air, and all over the world.

What is a symbiosis? What different kinds of symbiotic relationships are there? Are these animals friends? Have you observed symbiotic relationships around you? Do humans have relationships like this?

With our book recommendations, we want to help you spark a conversation that leads children to discover STEM in their everyday lives. Have the courage to go beyond the obvious STEM connections and embrace all questions that may come out of your discussion with the children.
