Although termites can physically chew and ingest wood, they are incapable of chemically
digesting the wood. Inside of the termite is an intestinal flagellate that secretes the enzymes
necessary for the termite to digest the wood. The flagellates live only inside in the hindgut of
termites.
Barnacles create home sites by attaching themselves to whale. This relationship neither
harms nor benefits the whale.
Tapeworms, for example, live inside the intestines of humans and farm animals. They obtain
digested food and shelter from their hosts. Hence, the hosts are likely to suffer from
malnutrition.
The stork uses its saw-like bill to cut up the dead animals it eats. As a result, the dead animal
carcass is accessible to some bees for food and egg laying. The relationship neither harms nor
benefits the stork.
Honey guide birds alert and direct badgers to bee hives. The badgers then expose the hives
and feed on the honey first, and then honey guide birds eat.
A remarkable 3-way symbiosis appears to have evolved between an ant, a butterfly
caterpillar, and an acacia in the American southwest. The caterpillars have nectar organs
which the ants drink from, and the acacia tolerates the feeding caterpillars. The ants appear to
provide some protection for both plant and caterpillar.
