Everyone loves the unlikely duo. Here are some ridiculously cute animal friends. Warning: you may melt into a pile of goo, but if you don’t, there’s a decent chance you’re a robot. Enjoy!

Bubbles the Elephant & Bella the Black Lab

Bubbles the African elephant and Bella the black Labrador are BFFs at the Myrtle Beach Safari Park. As a baby, Bubbles was rescued in Africa and placed at the park after her parents were both killed by poachers. Bubbles and Bella enjoy hanging out on the grass and in the water and playing a friendly game of fetch. Bubbles throws the ball with her trunk while Bella jumps off of Bubbles head to retrieve the ball.

Bea the Giraffe & Wilma the Ostrich

Something magical has brought Bea the giraffe and Wilma the ostrich together at Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay, Florida. According to zookeepers, the BFFs just can’t seem to get enough of each other. Bea and Wilma live on a 65-acre exhibit filled with giraffes, zebras, rhinos, African elephants and birds. While most animals tend to hang out with their own kind, Bea and Wilma, who were both born and raised on the park grounds, became unlikely friends.

Tinni the Dog & Sniffer the Fox

Tinni lives with his owner Torgeir Berge in the forests of Norway. One day, while they were on a walk together in the woods, they met a wild fox that they named Sniffer. Despite the thousands of years of breeding and the social circumstances that stood between them, they became the best of friends.

Now, Berge follows the two unlikely buddies around as they play and romp around in the woods. Fortunately for the rest of us, he is a photographer and brings his camera along to capture their amazing friendship.

According to Tinni’s owner, the way the two friends play together reminds us that wild animals, which many of us fear or disrespect, can be far more similar to the domesticated animals we love than we thought. This experience has even encouraged him to begin work on putting an end to Norway’s fox-fur trade.

Suryia the Orangutan & Roscoe the Hound Dog

Suryia the orangutan was so depressed after losing his parents that he stopped eating and responding to medical treatments; vets actually worried he would die from sadness. That all changed the day Suryia met Roscoe, an orphaned hound dog. The two lost souls found each other and have been best friends ever since! They both reside at The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (T.I.G.E.R.S) in Myrtle Beach, the same place as Bubbles the elephant and Bella the lab!

Fred the Labrador & Dennis the Baby Duck

Dennis, the baby duck, was less than a week old when Fred a 4 year old labrador adopted him after the baby duck’s mom was killed by a fox. Fred took an immediate shine to the duckling and began to clean the muddy duck with his tongue. The two have been buddies ever since and sleep together, play together and enjoy swimming in the local pond.

Anjana the Chimpanzee & Her White Tiger Cubs

When two white tiger cubs were born during a hurricane, they had to be separated from their mother after their sanctuary, which is also located at T.I.G.E.R.S, flooded. The two cubs were placed into the care of infant caregiver China York, but Anjana quickly came into role of assistant and surrogate as she couldn’t get enough of these two. Anjana, who was raised by China, helps her care for hundreds of animals at the sanctuary. “Monkey see, monkey do” has turned her into a terrific caregiver.Manni the Wild Boar Piglet & Candy the Terrier

Manni, a wild boar piglet became friends with Candy when she and her owners, the Dahlhaus family, found Manni starving in rural Ehringhausen, Germany after he was abandoned by her mother. The Dahlhaus family adopted Manni and and now he and Candy are best of friends. The two play ever day, enjoy games of hide and seek and romp around the yard together. Manni even makes a barking sound to communicate with Candy.Wild Cat & a Fox
