I don't know how long we coud keep this thread going but here it goes...

...a quiz based on RELATIONSHIPS be it mutalalistic/ parasitic or what ever.

Same three day rule applies.


Easy one to start things off.

A predatory Bird with a realtionship to the Ratel. Name it and explain it.

Nice idea, RM! Is it the Honey Buzzard and the Ratel? The Ratel leads this bird to honey.

I think that this is where we are going to battle as so many things interact with eachother. But sorry WAC not the one I wanted. :(

To be more specific this has nothing to do with Honey.

Agreed Arks :D
They follow ratels as the ratels disturb animals which the Goshawk then catches...

Didn't realise that this is yet another of those revolving quizzes, which I don't like as I have neither the time nor the interest to make up questions. So go ahead CS, and I guess I'll just sit out yet another quizz thread :(

I have either hit a dud quiz or CS is not interested. I'll give it one more try.

give an example of a non-discriminator hosting a non-matcher. And for the benifit of everyone explain these two terms.

I'll try; don't blame me if it's totally wrong! :roll:
....in relationships of Birds...
Non-discriminator hosts - does not care about the kind of egg in their nests; thus will readily accept badly mismatched eggs.

Non-matcher - Birds not of the same kind/species as the hosts, although their breeding co-insides with that of the host birds' ? :mrgreen:

Example:
Non-discriminator host - sparrows, bishops and weavers
Non-matcher - Diederik Cuckoo

Thumbs up for non-discrimanator.

Non matcher is the birds who's eggs don't match those of the host.

Over to Sonbesie

Within the Cape Floral Kingdom relationships are often a matter of survival. Thus give me a fauna - flora relationship spesific to the South-western Cape, of which many believes that without the one the other will seize to exist.
