2: What is symbiosis? | Symbiosis is the interaction between two different organisms living in close physical association, typically to the advantage of both. The three types of symbiosis are mutualism, commensalism, and parasitism.

3: Mutualism | Mutualism is when 2 animals in an interaction both benefit. This helps both organisms. An example would be: A sea anemone and clown fish. They both benefit each other because the sea anemone get food from clown fish, and the clown fish gets protection from the sea anemone.

4: Commensalism | Commensalism is when only 1 organism benefits while the other is not benefited NOR harmed. Examples will be: Rhinos and ox peckers. Ox peckers take the bugs in the rhino's back, while the rhino is unaffected. Another example will be barnacles attached to blue whales.

5: Parasitism | Parasitism is when 1 organism is benefited, while the other is harmed. Examples will be: Fleas in dogs and cats. Fleas get nutrition from the skin, while the pets are harmed. Another example will be tapeworms inside an organism's stomach.
