It is exactly like Isaiah 11:6: “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid . . . ” Written by National Geographic magazine writer Jennifer Holland, Unlikely Friendships documents one heartwarming tale after another of animals who, with nothing else in common, bond in the most unexpected ways. A cat and a bird. A mare and a fawn. An elephant and a sheep. A snake and a hamster. The well-documented stories of Koko the gorilla and All Ball the kitten; and the hippo Owen and the tortoise Mzee. And almost inexplicable stories of predators befriending prey—an Indian leopard slips into a village every night to sleep with a calf. A lionness mothers a baby oryx. Ms. Holland narrates the details and arc of each story, and also offers insights into why—how the young leopard, probably motherless, sought maternal comfort with the calf, and how a baby oryx inspired the same mothering instinct in the lionness. Or, in the story of Kizzy, a nervous retired Greyhound, and Murphy, a red tabby, how cats and dogs actually understand each other’s body language. With Murphy’s friendship and support, Kizzy recovered from life as a racing dog and became a confident, loyal family pet.
These are the most amazing friendships between species, collected from around the world and documented in a selection of full-color candid photographs.
IT WAS GIVEN AS A CHRISTMAS GIFT TO A REAL ANIMAL LOVER. THE FRIENDSHIPS ACROSS
THE SPECTRUM IN THE ANIMAL KINGDOM IS REALLY AMAZING AND A TESTAMENT TO THE FACT THAT ANIMALS OTHER THAN HUMAN CAN AND DO HAVE VERY STRONG FRENDSHIPS.
This is a beautiful book filled with heart warming stories about unlikely animal friendships. The photos of the paired animals are also wonderful and make you smile. I bought the book to read to my grandchildren but have enjoyed the stories just as much as I know they will.
