Picture the Fallow deer, its nose deep in the grass as it snuffles around for something to eat. One thing it doesn’t have is an easy way to pick its own nose clean of whatever might find a home there.

What a lot we humans have to be thankful for.
So the Fallow deer has this symbiotic relationship with a jackdaw that picks off insects and whatnots, even into the deer’s nostril.
