Animals Taking A Ride On Their Animal Friends

Sometimes, we really need our friends to have our backs - support us, listen to our troubles. And other times, we need them to have our back literally. It's those times when you're tired after hanging out, your legs are exhausted, and you whine, joking: "I'm tireeeeeed, can you carry meeeee?" Well, these animals took that request seriously. 

Cats are known as lazy, but have you ever seen one riding a pig? You're about to. It's kind of adorable, we're not gonna lie, seeing these different species come together and sit on each other's backs and heads. It's the kind of wholesome content that puts a smile on our faces and uplifts our mood. We hope these animal friendships put a smile on your face too today.

Photos Show That People Were Riding Zebras In The Late 19th And Early 20th Centuries

A new photo archive by Vintag.es shows that some of the European colonizers penetrating Africa in the 19th and early 20th centuries were riding wild zebras as an alternative to horses. 

The reason behind it is the zebra's resistance to diseases carried by tsetse flies which made their domestication more attractive.  

However, as many European colonizers learned in the early 20th century, despite their similarity to horses, zebras are just a bit too wild to completely tame. 

Unlike horses, which naturally roam around munching on grass, zebras spend their lives cagily watching, evading and fighting savannah predators such as lions, cheetahs and crocodiles. Natural selection has bred zebras to be nervous, flighty and brutally aggressive if cornered. 

But taming individual zebras to perform horse-like duties has occasionally been successful. Lord Walter Rothschild, for instance, trained a team of zebras to pull a carriage, which he drove past Buckingham Palace to demonstrate their supposedly pliable nature.
