Ouch! Pesky insects bite up warthogs under the hot sun. Luckily, banded mongooses are here to help. They ride atop warthogs' backs, picking insects out of their skin. The warthogs are happy to provide meals for the mongooses. The symbiotic bond between these species helps them both survive. This title for young readers explores the lives of these animal friends, including their habitat, individual behaviors, and relationship with one another!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "With bright backgrounds, easy-to-interpret charts, and seriously entertaining photographs of its subjects (not quite the beauty queens of the animal kingdom), this entry in the Animal Tag Teams series (6 titles) introduces newly confident readers to a symbiotic relationship. First, the book describes warthogs and mongooses; quick sidebar profiles provide basic background facts on each of these African mammals. Then the text explains how they work as a team: ticks, which can make a warthog sick, burrow into their bodies, but the mongooses eat them, getting a quick and easy meal and keeping the warthogs healthy. Vocabulary words, set in bold, stand out from the rest of the concise, direct sentences, while the charts and images are clearly labelled and easy to decipher. An excellent introduction to nonfiction for new researchers, featuring two scene-stealing stars.--Maggie Reagan Copyright 2019 Booklist"
