Friendship is great. Animals are great. Animal friendships? You guessed it – it's great. This list is for those wonderful animal best buddies 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, thus forming very unlikely animal friendships. Most of our readers probably don't keep lions or elephants, but if you've got some cute photos of unusual animal friends, we'd love to see them. And vote for your favorite adorable animal pairs, too!
