What is symbiosis? Why do termites keep fungus gardens? Why do bumblebees feed from snapdragon flowers? Living together is usually safer than living alone. Perfect Partners looks at how different species come together and take what they need from each other, often forming partnerships for life. Some animals are partners with algae that make food for them. Other animals have bacteria living inside them to help digest their food. Many plants need animal partners for pollination and to spread their seeds.
