At The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species in South Carolina, a chimp named Anjana befriended a couple of white tigers, and this resulted in some super cute pictures.
Humans love stories like this–we have a never-ending fascination with species that befriend other kinds of species. These stories are always sweet, but do they really differ from stories about humans and dogs?
Dogs and people are simply two kinds of animals that happen to be pretty fond of each other.
(If the above picture didn’t satisfy your cuteness sweet tooth, there are more interspecies pairings on view at Mental Floss.)
