Symbiotic Relationships Water Lily Beetle Moth Sloth Mutualism: The flower lives to produce nectar, and the beetle eats the nectar to survive. Commensalism: The moth eats the algae that grows on the sloths fur, but it does not bother the sloth. Fungus Insects Parasitism: The insects eat the fungus, which makes them go insane, and commit suicide.
