Friendship in the wild

No man is an island so they say but it seems animals too are taking a leaf from this saying…we all need friends at one point or another and Just as we form friendships across borders and interact with people of different cultures, interests and so forth, animals too seem to be doing the same; forming companionship with others not of their kind. It may come across to us as unusual, unnatural even but who knows what could be going through these animal buddies’ minds…

In 2006, a photographer in India snapped this photo of a mouse perched on the back of a frog as flood waters rose. The annual summer monsoon rains arrived early that year, but this lucky little mouse managed to keep its head above water, thanks to a froggy friendship.
