30 unlikely animal friendships

The poet Tennyson said nature was "red in tooth and claw" - but sometimes, even the laws of the animal kingdom (and the food chain) can be ignored, resulting in some surprising friendships. Take a look at our gallery of the most unexpected animal allies and choose from a dog and a cat cuddling up or a goat giving a horse a massage (take a second to read that again. A goat. Giving a massage. To a horse.) We challenge you not to feel all warm inside. Gives you back your faith in the world it does.
