Oxpecker On Giraffe Back
A red-billed oxpecker sits on the back of a giraffe. Oxpeckers eat the insects and other parasites from the skin of the animal, so they are very useful for its health. They can also be a nuisance though. They pull hairs for their nests and they eat from the flesh around open wounds. This may make the wounds heal faster, but it's also a painful process.
