Unlikely Animal Friends
1 x 60'
An elephant holds vigil for a sick dog. A baby hippo chooses a giant tortoise as a surrogate parent. A lion instantly recognises two men a year after their last encounter. And a lioness turns down an easy kill when she comes across a baby oryx.
Can animals really build friendships with other species, people, or even their own prey? How do these odd couples come to be? What do they gain from these improbable companionships? This special takes a heart-warming look at these curious bonds, and explores the emotional complexities behind unlikely animal friends.
