    Some people still believe that animals are merely dumb beasts, but the unexpected animal friendships we've gathered here will show that they, too, are capable of experiencing love and compassion. All of these animal photographs are obviously heartbreakingly lovely, but there's more to them than that. Why did these animals become friends? Some of species, such as lions, dogs, and elephants, are known in the wild for building deep social bonds or even networks. In the absence of their prides or packs, it seems to reason that they would seek out animal companions from other species. Other more isolated animals, especially if their parents have died, may create a parent-child bond with creatures with whom they spend time or who helped rear them.

    Whatever the reason, extraordinary friendships such as these demonstrate that animals are significantly more emotionally complicated than many of humans believe. Despite their complexity, these amusing creatures have entertaining moments when playing with their mate. Wildlife photography or the animal owner's keen eye resulted in these amusing animal photographs. Perhaps the friendships aren't so strange after all!

    After their mother's habitat was flooded after a cyclone, these two white tiger cubs were separated. Fortunately, Anjana the chimp and their guardian, China York, have adopted them by a U.S. animal sanctuary. Anjana has assisted China in raising a variety of orphaned animals, so we're confident they're in good care.

    Suryia and Roscoe share a home at a rare and endangered species refuge in the United States. While orangutans are critically endangered, dogs are not. Roscoe, on the other hand, has been living with her since he accompanied Suryia and her handlers home. He didn't seem to have any other options, so he stayed with Suryia, and they've been great friends ever since.

    The story of Shere Khan the tiger, Baloo the bear, and Leo the lion is heartfelt. They were rescued together from a drug dealer who had severely abused them. Baloo even required surgery to remove a harness that had grown into his skin and created abnormalities since the owner had never adjusted it. The three buddies are now bonded as a result of their shared suffering. They are cared for by the Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary in the United States.
