Buddy, Buddy Among Creatures

On top of the Spanish Pyrenees may be found a magnificently beautiful but elusive mountain goat. It seems always to get away from shooting range. Why? It has a companion, a young goat, who follows and sounds the warning of enemies around it.

The rhinoceros has very poor eyesight. But its tough hide is infested with ticks—a delicacy to a certain little bird which rides on its back, feeding on the insects and alerting the rhino to danger.

Both the ratel, a badger-like animal, and the little honey-guide bird love honey. And so they go out together. The keen eye of the little bird quickly pin-points a beehive with honey, and the ratel’s powerful claws tear up the hive, making the honey available to both.
