Having ticks removed is pure bliss. This Cape Buffalo bull enjoys the Red-billed Oxpecker’s treatment. The small birds live in a truly symbiotic relationship with big mammals.
The Oxpeckers gain a great food source and the Buffalo get rid of annoying parasites. Thanda guests always enjoy watching this bush partnership.
