What is some examples of commensalism?
A example of commensalism is barnacles and grey whales. You know that white stuff you see on gray whales? That's barnacles. Barnacles live on gray whales and get transported around the ocean. Cryptolepas rhachianecti attaches only to grey whales not any other kind, once they attach they stay on their for the rest of their life. The barnacles stick out feather feet to comb the sea and capture plankton. Barnacles are mainly on the whales head, back, flippers and tail flucks. Hope I helped you!! thanks
