When I watch the nature channel, most of what of animals I see as tribes. They fight each other, steal food from each other and sometimes - devour one another. But is that really what they want to do, or is the natural world and survival push them to it by sheer necessity?
When all is said and done, and there is no reason to cause harm, would animals still fight each other? I think these photos gives a pretty great answer to that question. All of the animals in these photos aren't just posing - they're actual friendships that developed between very different animals.
