Friendship is great. Animals are great. Animal friendship? You guessed it – it's great. This list is for those wonderful animal friends who look beyond each others' (often considerable) differences and see the wonderful souls beneath the surface.
When their life isn't a struggle to survive (which often is the case in captivity), some predators can even potentially look at prey animals as friends, not as food. Most of our readers probably don't keep lions or elephants, but if you've got some adorable pics of animal friendship, we'd love to see them. And vote for your favorite animal buddies, too!
