Capybara (Hydrochaeris hydrochaeris) standing in shallow water with a yellow-headed caracara (Milvago chimachima) perched on its back. This bird has a mutualistic relationship with the capybara, feeding on the parasites in its skin and pelt, as seen here. The Capybara had escaped and survived the attack of a carnivorous predator. Photographed in the Brazilian Pantanal.
