Interspecies Encounters: Wholesome Animal Edition

Honestly, there is nothing more adorable than seeing a pair of animals (who are completely different species) get along. 

Why is that? Maybe it's because animals are just better than people and can be friends with almost anyone, regardless of their species. It's a beautiful and pure sight and if this doesn't brighten up your day, we honestly don't know what will. 

Enjoy some major wholesomeness!

Sniffer And Tinni: Real-Life "Fox And The Hound"

Sniffer, the wild fox, and Tinni, the dog, are just like Disney's "Fox and the Hound," except this time, they remain best friends and there's no heartbreak involved. 

It's a real-life Disney movie that's even more Disney than the Disney version! Hounds and foxes, typically, do not get along, That's why it was a surprise to Tinni's owner, photographer Torgeir Berge when their interaction blossomed into a real friendship. 

Lucky for us, Torgeir Berge captured some really lovely photos of the pair and now we can all have the "Fox and the Hound" version we all deserve.

New Study Reveals Grey Reef Sharks Form Long-Lasting 'Friendships'

Sharks who form long-lasting friendships with one another? That's actually really cute.

According to a team of scientists, in Florida, they have recently discovered that grey reef sharks form long-lasting relationships with one another. Yannis Papastamatiou, a member of the team studying this phenomenon, said "We don't think of sharks as social animals, but they do have social groups."

The grey reef sharks are large-eyed sharks who roam the Pacific and Indian ocean. They are known to be aggressive nocturnal predators but it turns out they have a soft side when it comes to other grey reef sharks.

The cuteness never ends! Meet Sakura, the otter, and Mochi, the cat! 

The pair are best friends and love to snuggle with each other and the hearts of everyone, everywhere, are exploding. 

Sakura can't seem to let go of Mochi while snuggling and it made us think about how otters (in the wild) hold onto the hands of their friends and family so they don't drift away and lose one another. Makes this moment feel just as precious, wouldn't you say?

Wombat And Koala Strike Up Friendship During Lockdown

Be still our tender hearts! There is absolutely nothing more precious than when two different animal species become best friends! 

During the COVID-19 lockdown at the Australian Wildlife Park, a koala named, Elsa, and a wombat named, Hope, shared an enclosure together. 

It was during that time that they two struck up the most adorable friendship. They're now being called, "lockdown BFFs." The two marsupials were hand raised by the keepers at the Australia Reptile Park, wombats are actually the closest relative species to the koala, so their keepers figured it would be a friendship match in heaven... they were right. 

Now that the park has re-opened, the keepers are making sure that the two are able to see each other every day!

Animals Of Instagram Spotlight Of The Week: Polly and Paxton

Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This week's spotlight goes to Polly and Paxton!

This adorable duo comes with such a heartwarming story! 

Paxton, a 12-year-old Labrador retriever, immediately bonded with a days-old blind kitten, Polly. Polly was found crying within a thicket of trees when owner Morgan Webb discovered her. She brought in the kitten and began to give her a bath. 

Paxton, never leaving Polly's side from the moment she arrived, stood by and sniffed and nuzzled Polly the moment her bath was completed. 

When a few drops of kitten milk spilled from the bottle and onto Polly, Webb stated this moment led to their inseparable bond. "Paxton would lick, lick, lick her, and he fell in love. I think that is where their relationship really started." Webb tells PEOPLE.  

Since then, their bond has been so strong and loving -- and it shows.

Coyotes And Badgers: A Friendship Like No Other

It has come to the worlds attention that coyotes and badgers are often in some sort of partnership when it comes to hunting. 

It's a pretty rare phenomenon to see two different species of predators working together to get their next meal. 

According to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, "Studies have shown that this unusual relationship is beneficial for both species. The coyote can chase down prey if it runs and the badger can dig after prey if it heads underground into its burrow systems."

Who knew?! Pretty amazing to see these two work together! And thanks to the Peninsula Open Space Trust, a recent video of the duo, on the hunt, has come out. 

Twitter user, Russ McSpadden, shared the video and sparked a thread about this wholesome friendship that users have come to love.
