Do all animals groom themselves?

    No. Many animals simply don’t have anything to groom, or are incapable of doing so. Fish aren’t really equipped to groom themselves. Most reptiles simply shed their skin. Many mammals don’t really have thick fur which could be groomed. “Grooming” is really a behavior most common in animals with thick coats which need careful maintenance — birds and furry mammals are the most common groomers. Other animals get similar functions to grooming with help from other organisms, such as cleaner fish which help clear parasites and decaying food from the mouths and scales of other, larger fish.
