The concept of altruism in animals has been discussed and theorized by biologists and animal experts for quite some time.

For us humans, one of the most touching examples of this is when another animal's heart seems to break when their friend, from another species, takes ill. Dogs and other non-canine mammals include pigs, deer, squirrels, and monkeys, but rarely elephants. The natural world is full of amazing stories, but sometimes animals act in ways that seemingly go against all their instincts.

From an elephant standing guard over a sick dog, to a giant tortoise adopting a baby hippo, and a lioness that ignores all the laws of nature to look after a baby oryx, these heart-warming stories delve into the stranger side of nature as we ask, can animals really be friends with other species?
