Red-billed ox-pecker (buphagus erythrorhynchus) sitting on the face of a warthog (Phacochoerus africanus or Phacochoerus aethiopicus). The red-billed ox-pecker and the warthog have a symbiotic relationship. The bird gains food by eating ticks from the warthog's skin, while the warthog gets cleaned of parasites. Filmed in Zimanga private game reserve, Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa.
