What causes unusual pet friendships?
Nobody (meaning scientists and people who know what they're talking about) actually understand what causes lions and lambs or wolves and sheep to break the stereotype between friend and foe, but in the human world, opposites often attract. Bonding and friendships has long since been believed to be a trait known only to people, However, in his study of chimpanzees in the Kibale National Park in Uganda, primatologist John Mitani witnessed the deep emotional bond shared by unrelated chimps in the wild. Many other researchers have found the same complex relationships among baboons, dolphins, elephants, dogs, and more. Some scientists believe that species who have evolved from the same line of evolution can reach across the species barrier.
