An unlikely hero showed up in Australia - wombats have been seen helping other animals in drought-ravaged areas in Australia.

As Newsweek reports, "[t]hese accidental heroes have been burrowing into an underground pool of water located on a beef farm southwest of Merriwa, New South Wales," and "[i]n the process, they have opened up the water hole for other species to enjoy."

One of our favorite things in the world is interspecies friendships. They're so cool and interesting, and the circumstances which led to those friendships are just as interesting if not more. The latest unlikely friendship that we've come across is one that seems like it's straight out of a Disney movie - a meerkat, a hyena cub, and two lion cubs.

Yeah, we know, aren't hyenas and lions mortal enemies? And isn't a meerkat merely a snack for hyenas and lions? Normally, the answer to both would be yes. But in this situation, under their special circumstances, in a zoo in South Africa, a strange and beautiful friendship has formed. 

These adorable animals all met when they were just babies. As they explain in the video: Qala - the hyena - arrived at the zoo as an orphan after her mom was caught in a farmer's trap, Safari and Sussie - the lion cubs - were rejected by their mother at birth, and Pokkel - the coolest meerkat in the world - was found simply wandering alone without its family.

Their friendship may not last forever, since both the lions and hyena are growing, and their instincts should be kicking in soon, so even playfighting might become dangerous for Pokkel. But for now, this is one of the cutest unlikely friendships we've ever seen, and we're glad that these cuties are enjoying each other.

One of out favorite things in the world is unlikely interspecies relationships, so unlikely and so beautiful. We've seen many of those in pictures before, but to see one in video is always an absolute treat. 

This adorable doggo named Zyzz hangs out with his owners on the boat all the time, to the point that they consider Zyzz part of the crew. And he loves swimming. The owners say that they never pushed him toward it, he just always felt the pull of the water and is always eager to jump in. Surprise, surprise, another creature is living in the water - an adorable dolphin that the boat crew calls Jojo. 

The dog and dolphin get along like best buds, and you can tell that they really enjoy each other. Zyzz is always excited about Jojo, sometimes dipping his head in the water to try to see better what's going on, and Jojo sometimes splashes Zyzz with its tail. Their relationship is one of the most wholesome we've seen in a while.

We've seen a lot of unusal interspecies friendship but can't recall ever seeing this particular bond...

A cat and a snake... friends? Weird, right? Weird but strangely really neat. That's what Twitter user and cat owner @molly7anne thought, too. After sharing a few images of her cat just basking in the sun with a snake, the tweet soon went viral and was flooded with comments and criticism (as always).

Here are a few of the most popular comments:
