Seeing two dogs or two wild cats play can do something strange to one’s heart. The comradery we see in animals is quite inspiring. But what happens when two animals of different species become as close as littermates? A whole lotta love! These unlikely animal friends will make you wish you had a friend as good as theirs!
Suryia the Orangutan lives in an endangered species reserve in the U.S. While Roscoe isn’t endangered like his friend, he enjoys spending time with the orangutan he lives with. Suryia’s favorite thing to do is give the dog swimming lessons, even though she’s the one who has to wear a life jacket!
These two friends, Miwa, a Japanese macaque, and Uri-bo, a wild boar, are at Fukuchiyama City Zoo in Japan. A zookeeper introduced them when Miwa was constantly crying. The boar took to the baby and allows it to ride his back everywhere he goes.
J’aime came to the Rhino Orphanage in South Africa in March 2017, but she was too small to be with the other rhinos. Thankfully, a got named Joey decided they would be best buds. Now the two hang every single day!
In 2003 a baby hippopotamus, Owen, was rescued after a Tsunami hit his home. He was brought to an animal sanctuary in Kenya. Soon enough, he met a sweet tortoise named Mzee who decided that this new hippo wasn’t so bad.
Is it just us or does this look like two bearded dragons, one of them just a hair furrier than the other. No wonder the two are friends, they look just alike!
Roo was found in a ditch by the side of the road. Missing two legs, he was nearly helpless. Thankfully, Penny, a silkie chicken, decided all he needed was friendship. Now the two (who would have been put down otherwise) share an unbreakable bond.
Now here is a trio you don’t want to get on the wrong end of. The three of them were rescued from an abusive drug dealer. Now, though traumatized, they spend their time playing together at Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary in the U.S.
Remember Babe, the pig who thought he was a dog? It seems this boar has the same idea. The family found the piglet starving in southwest Germany. When he was brought home with them, he instantly bonded with heir young Jack Russell!
Kasi and Mtani grew up together in Busch Gardens in Tampa. They played like littermates for months! Nowadays, Kasi the Cheetah prefers the company of female cheetahs to his friend Mtani. But at least they still spend a little time together!
Bea the giraffe and Wilma the ostrich are one of the strangest pairs you’ll see. These ladies live together at Busch Gardens in the U.S. They don’t live close quarters, but rather share a 65-acre enclosure, yet they choose to spend all of their time together.
