An example of parasitism is a Mosquito, The are always sucking another organisms blood and causing them to inch. Another example would be a snake and mites. Snakes can get mites underneather their scales that suck their blood until they die.

commensalism is a relationship in which one species derives food or shelter from another species without harming that organism or providing any benefits in return.Some examples of commensalism would be a snail and a shell. The snail has shelter from the shell on his back and the shell remains unharmed. Another example would be a Whale and a Barnicle. The barnicle attaches to the whale to get food easily and the whale in unharmed by the barncle living on him.
