A perfect example of a mutualistic interaction is a cattle egret eating insects as the cow graze. The cow will chase the insect away and the egret eats the insect. A competitive interaction example is lions fighting over a female mate for dominance. A predator-prey interaction is a relationship between a cheetah and antelope.
