Imprinting is when an animal gets attached to an object or creature then forms a bond with one another. The bond is mutualism because both animals benefit from each other for survival. This happens during birth or a specific critical time in the animals life. If one animal seems to be in danger or is in danger the other one does something to help them out in the situation the endanger animal is in. The animals are able to learn from one another for survival skills.
