    is a non-mutual symbiotic relationship between species, where one species, the parasite, benefits at the expense of the other, the host. Traditionally parasite referred primarily to organisms visible to the naked eye, or macroparasites

    This 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.

    sure! 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.
