    Steller's Jays will mimic red tailed hawks in order to get other species to vacate areas with food.

    In Yellowstone grisly bears have been known to drive wolves off their kills. Bald eagles, foxes, coyotes, ravens, buzzards, and other animals also steal from wolves. Wolves also steal kills from coyotes and mountain lions.

    These animals probably were raised in single parent families that didn’t go to church.

    Speaking of stealing I remember witnessing an interesting relationship with carpenter bees and bell flowers where the bees that are rather a bit too large to fit into the narrow openings of the flowers to get the nectar and thereby help to pollinate the flowers actually bit at the base of the flower to get directly to the nectar and bypass the pollination completely. You can even see the little scars where they have repeatedly done it before.

    It's so difficult to enjoy the videos while looking at the comments. Good Lord all the tryhard funny comments. Adding italics or bold text doesn't make your comment a zinger. All good jokes are ruined by formatting. Jeez.
