9 Amazing Animal Friendships (Videos)


It’s hard to stereotype the relationships between animals of a different species; sure, sometimes cats and dogs don’t get along, sometimes snakes want to make a snack out of hamsters, but that’s not always the case. Check out some truly inspiring cross-species animal friendships — perhaps us humans can learn a think or two  about getting along with others!

interesting that many of us were a bit uneasy about the snake/hampster relationship. hard to read a snake. would like to know it that little hampster is still around! i wonder how the other reptile really feels about that least it couldn't eat it. many of these animals would normally be enemies and some might eat the other. that is normal and natural in nature. the amazing thing is that something caused them to react differently. i wonder if there are any theories on why.

Somehow, I don't think the "friendship" between the snake and hampster is going to work out too well for the poor hampster!
The others are, of course, adorable!
