One of the miracles of evolution is the symbiotic relationship: Two different species conjoined in a mutually beneficial arrangement. But sometimes one party gets the better end of the deal.

Sure, old sleepy Kodiak may be glad to dispense with the work of shedding all that fuzz herself. It’s the brazen little bird on her backside, however, that comes out ahead: just imagine what a cozy, fluffed-up, luxury penthouse nest it’ll make with that harvest. To die for!

As it happens, this type of thievery is common—these pipsqueaks have great taste.

Finally, a love of stylish fur that not even PETA could knock.
