Maybe humans could learn a thing or two about cooperation from these unexpected animal families. These animals often seem to get along surprisingly well with other species who, left in the wild, might rather eat than feed them.
The first of these videos shows a dog who’s adopted a leopard cub, and then a piglet. On page 2 you’ll see a pig turning the tables and mothering tiger cubs. And page 3 features a bulldog who’s babysitting an orangutan. Pretty cool.
Dog Adopts a Leopard Baby and Piglet
Spice, a Jack Russell terrier, has adopted a leopard baby that had been rejected by his mother. But that’s not all — along comes a potbellied piglet that was the runt of his litter and needs a new home.
At last, three happy individuals have a new family.
The tables are turned in the video on page 2 as a pig adopts tiger cubs.
