Artist's Description

African Buffalo or Cape Buffalo, Charadrius pecuarius, with Yellow Billed Oxpeckers, Buphagus africanus. Lake Nakuru National Park, Kenya, East Africa.
Canon 500D, zoom lens.
(Featured in Amazing Wildlife, & Other Groups.)
The Yellow-billed Oxpecker eats insects and ticks. Both the English and scientific names arise from this species’ habit of perching on large wild and domesticated mammals such as cattle and eating arthropod parasites. It will also perch on antelopes such as Wildebeest. In a day an adult will take more than 100 engorged female Boophilus decoloratus ticks or 13,000 larvae.
