Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is what I came up with it is a a relationship with two non mutual species, this happens when you have a host and a parasite as the species they both get different benefits from each other.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sure! for a parasite it would be a tapeworms, fleas, and barnacles. for a host it would be like prey so for example if a dog had a flea then the dog would be a host and the flea would be a predator.
