Giant Tortoise And Baby Cow Become Best Friends.

The best friendships are the ones that are least expected. Two individuals that you least expect to click or get along sometimes happen to be the complete opposite. This also goes for animals. It’s typical of one animal to befriend another animal of the same species. Animals who befriend other animals from different species, however, share the most special bonds.

Take Leonardo, the African spurred tortoise, and Simon, the baby cow, for example. These two are completely different species yet they’ve somehow created an inseparable bond that’s made them the best of friends.

In 2013, a Bangkok zoo rescued Leonardo, whereas Simon arrived in January after seriously injuring his leg.
