The relationship between rhinos and oxpeckers goes way back. In fact, the Swahili words for the bird (Askari Wa Kifaru) quite literally mean "the rhino’s guard.” In a seemingly mutualistic relationship, the oxpeckers ride around on the rhinos, picking ticks from them and giving out a warning hiss when predators including humans venture too close.
