FRIENDSHIP BETWEEN DIFFERENT ANIMAL SPECIES 2
1 year ago

This is the second thread for this popular topic.

Sometimes animals of different species will take to each other without thought that their new friend doesn't look a bit like them and even might be prey that they would normally chase for food. These pictures are a testament to that. Please post you own pictures showing love between the species.

Smaigel the Cat / Puppies

It’s not a scene most people expect: an animal of one species adopting or parenting that of another. Yet there have been a number of publicized interspecies pairings, from tigers mothering baby pigs to turtles becoming friends with hippos. In particular, domestic cats and dogs co-existing happily or even becoming fast friends seems like a rare feat. But in February 2009, when the mother of four puppies died in a car accident, a cat named Smaigel accepted the pups as her own. Above, Smaigel the cat nursed her kittens and the puppies at her owner Mohammad Al-Hamoury’s house in Amman, Jordan.

Dog / Cora the baby tiger

A four-year-old dog (above) adopted Cora, a two-month-old baby tiger, in Villeneuve-d’Asq, northern France in July 2004. Cora, who was born into a circus, was accepted by the dog after the baby tiger was rejected by her mother.

Uri-bo The Boar / Miwa The Monkey

Both found without their mothers in June 2010, baby monkey Miwa and baby boar Uri-bo were brought together at the Fukuchiyama City Zoo in the Kyoto Prefecture of Japan and became quite the popular pair. Japanese monkeys generally ride on their mothers’ backs, and Miwa took to Uri-bo as a replacement.

Giant Tortoise / Owen The Hippopotamus

Owen, a baby hippopotamus that survived the Indian Ocean tsunami, adopted a giant male Aldabran tortoise as its “mother” in 2005. Wildlife rangers rescued the hippopotamus after he was swept into the Indian Ocean and then forced back to shore when tsunami waves hit the Kenyan coast. Separated from his mother, Owen and the tortoise have been together for at least a year at the Mombasa Haller Park in Mombasa, Kenya.

Dog / Lion Cubs

A mother dog at the Safari Park in Hefei, China, parented three lion cubs when their mother abandoned them after birth in July 2009. It is common in Chinese zoos to use female dogs as surrogate mothers for new cubs, including tigers and bears.

An evolution of a friendship

See it through to the end, as you will see the original kitten (Lemon) when it was with the then puppy, Honey.

When you watch a video like this, you realise how much time and patience has to go into the bonding of two different species - let alone one being a huge giant in size as well.

Soldiers in Belarus found a little squirrel and brought it to the Warrant officer.

The squirrel was very weak and about to die, so the officer took care of it, fed it like a baby every 4 hours.

3 months ago the guy left the army and now works as a taxi driver - and the squirrel is always in his pocket no matter where he goes!










Cute little squirrel continued -

You're very welcome Brenda, Barbara, Sandi and Joseph. Yes Joseph, it is nice to know that there is still love in the world, especially between totally different species. One of my favorite pictures is the tiny squirrel sleeping on his best friend's chest.

5 Mama Animals Adopt Babies of Different Species

Read more: http://www.care2.com/causes/5-mama-animals-adopt-babies-of-different-species.html#ixzz28qn0RbTb

 

Humans aren’t the only ones who adopt babies of other species (like kittens and puppies). Animals do it too.

Non-human animals aren’t usually credited with emotions like generosity or empathy, but those are the simplest explanations for the decisions of cats, pigs, tigers, and many others to adopt babies who not only were not theirs genetically, but were a different species entirely.

One example is a cat who adopted a baby squirrel into her litter of kittens. The cat, Emmy, adopted, suckled, and raised the squirrel, Rocky, as her own. Rocky blended right in with his siblings, even learning to purr when stroked.
