Relationships between species are always beautiful and heartwarming. And this story is no exception!
A photographer captured the cutest relationship between a baby gorilla and a chimpanzee on camera. And we thank the photographer for bringing these amazing photos into our lives!
The photographer’s name is Michael Poliza. The photos taken by him show the duo cuddling, playing, and being best friends!
Lots of babies in the animal kingdom don’t discriminate. In fact, we’ve seen some great friendships between baby monkeys and tigers, puppies and tigers, even dogs and owls.
And this friendship seems so pure that it is overwhelming.
However, it’s hard to say whether they’ll keep their friendships throughout adulthood. As you know, gorillas can be very possessive and territorial and sometimes quite aggressive, especially as they get bigger and older.
They are used to being rough with each other, so there is a risk of danger for a smaller animal like a chimpanzee.
