What are the chances of a lioness meeting a sun bear? Slim to none. Now, what are the chances of the two becoming besties? Even lower. Now, what are the chances of one of them being albino? About 0.00000002% (sure, the number is legit. Don’t look it up, though.)
What we’re looking at is a statistical anomaly of the first degree! Who knew statistics can be so gosh darn cute?
Dog and Fox
Wait, hold up. You are seeing what we are seeing, right? A fox and a dog being best friends, napping and frolicking around on the grass? Does this image ring any bells? Any old-school Disney fans out there are sure to get the reference.
You want to tell us that Disney's "The Fox and the Hound" is REAL? We mean, sure, these are a fox and a shepherd of some kind, but movies take creative license all the time, right?
Dog and Ferret
Take a look at Mishka the dog. She is a Burmese mountain dog who lives with her human, Christine, in Australia. Now take a look at Jerry the ferret. That's the little fuzzy one with his head sticking out of the box. He lives with his human, Susan, in Australia too.
Taking after their human owners, these two furry creatures are enjoying spending time with each other. Honestly, why wouldn't they? We know we would enjoy spending time with them.
Rhino and a River Hog
We can see that. I mean, if you squint a little, it kinda looks like a rhino with a baby rhino. (A rhino calf? Do they call baby rhinos calves? *quick Google* Yes, they do!)
But the smaller creature here has nothing to do with rhinos. Not genetically, anyway. River hogs are, in fact, more closely related to pigs, which is why they are also nicknamed bushpigs.
Hippo and Tortoise
The irony here is not in the sweet friendship between the two creatures here. It's that the green fella on the left is called a "giant tortoise". Yeah, it's significantly bigger than your average pet tortoise, but we wonder if it knows that the water-loving friend on the right will eventually be tank-sized.
Sure, they are about the same size now, but you just wait. Soon enough, that hippo will be so big the tortoise could ride its back with room to spare.
