The most unlikely animal friendships

The most unlikely animal friendships

We can’t seem to get enough of unlikely animal friendships, with videos and images of different animal species snuggling and playing inundating the internet. But now the adorable images have caught the interest of some scientists, who want to conduct further study into the phenomenon.

Researchers believe the rare alliances could lead to a greater understanding of how species communicate, why certain animals can connect across species lines and the degree to which these alliances to affect animal behaviours of other species.

“There’s no question that studying these relationships can give you some insight into the factors that go into normal relationships,” said Gordon Burghardt, professor of psychology and ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Tennessee.

“Even one example raises the possibility that there’s something interesting going on here,” Dr. Burghardt said.
