A Nile crocodile opens its mouth wide. An Egyptian plover swoops in! It uses its sharp bill to pick at the crocodile's teeth. But this dental work benefits the bird, too. It gets tasty food from the crocodile's mouth! This title will take readers on a trip to the Nile River, where they'll explore the symbiotic relationship between this unusual animal pair.
