Sonoran Symbiosis

The Sonoran Toad and the Tarantula share an extraordinary symbiotic relationship- the tarantula shares its burrow with the toad, which eats the ants that could be a threat to the spider's eggs. While the tarantula ensures that its eggs are protected this way, the toad gets a meal and a free stay!
