dear student,
Predation is a biological interaction where a predator (an organism that is hunting) feeds on its prey (the organism that is attacked). The predator kills the prey at once and has it in the form of food whereasparasite lives in or on another organism (its host) and benefits by deriving nutrients at the other's expense. This type of interaction is called as parasitism. One of the partners is benefitted while the other partner is harmed.
thank you.
