Interspecies friendship

An interspecies friendship is a bond that is formed between animals of different species. :Domestication of animals has led to very unusual interspecies friendships between two (or more) species that would naturally never exist together otherwise. Domestication is defined as a multi-generational relationship in which one group of organisms assumes a significant degree of influence over the reproduction and care of another group to secure a more predictable supply of resources from that second group. Numerous cases have been reported among wild and domesticated animals and documented with photography and video.
