Staghorn ferns are spectacular plants that have leaves looking like antlers. One particular species, Platycerium bifurcatum, grows on Lord Howe Island in Australia. The plants live in colonies of hundreds of individuals.

As per a recent study, these plants cooperate with each other, like a colony of ants and bees. Though they are in different sizes, shapes and textures, the plants fit together like jigsaw and collaborate with each other to store water and nutrients for the entire colony.
