While other fish fear predatory sharks, the remora fish literally attaches itself to these beasts through its oval-shaped suction cup. The fish, commonly known as a suckerfish or sharksucker, can be as long as 3 feet--not an insignificant passenger.

It’s one of nature’s more unusual symbiotic relationships, but it seems to work for all involved.
