The sheer range of the animal kingdom ensure that there will always be many Symbiotic animal human relationships. The most obvious are dogs and cats or maybe chimps and humans. Here is a list of the less well known animal human partnerships:
Not happy with just eating raw fish the Japanese use specially trained birds that fish for them. The birds, Cormorants, have a snare tied around the neck that allows the birds to swallow small fish but prevents the birds from swallowing large ones. The bird then returns to the boat and like a good bulimic vomits up the catch at the fisherman’s feet.
Spa patrons are a finicky bunch, bored with their coffee enemas, and chocolate facials they’re turning to the latest in ways rich housewives can waste money, fish pedicures. Patrons pay money to dip their feet in fish pools were the small carp, like little piranhas, nibble off the dead flesh. Although banned in many parts of America you can still get your skin nibbled off many establishments in Japan.
Hmmm dead skin
The most expensive coffee in the world is the Kopi Luwak coffee. Only 450 kilograms are produced annually worldwide and stores sell a cup for around $30. The coffee is so good because the humans use the Asian Palm Civet to “process it.” By process I mean eat and then shit out the coffee beans. Yes the cat eats the coffee beans, defecates them and then Starbucks brews the cat pooh to make supposed delicious coffee.
I make coffee out of cat pooh!
Talked about this relationship a little in “Are we too clean?” but various tape worms are seen as a way to reduce allergic reactions and fatties still ingest worms under the false pretence that they will help them loose weight.
