African Whitebacked Vulture - Gyps africanus and Lappetfaced Vulture - Torgos tracheliotus in parliament together. The different species often work together on a kill, squabbling all the while, but the fact is that the smaller Gyps need the power of the Torgos larger, stronger beak to tear open a carcass.
Like people, some animals just prefer being single. It's nothing personal, they would just rather be on their own than date. They don't want commitment, families, any of that hassle. They just want to be left alone. Is that so much to ask for?
