Animal Odd Couple
Talk about odd.
I’m certain people have seen dogs get along with cats. Not common, but I am certain people have heard about this type of odd relationship.
This will blow your mind: how about an orangutang and a dog as friends? (src)
Suryia the orangutan and Roscoe the Bluetick Coonhound met in a sanctuary for endangered animals two years ago, in South Carolina, according to the U.K.’s Daily Mail.
Roscoe was an underfed stray, but Suryia quickly took him under his wing.
Dr. Bhagavan Antle, founder of The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (TIGERS) in Myrtle Beach, told the Daily Mail that Roscoe followed him and Suryia through the park’s gate one day.
“As soon as he saw Roscoe, Suryia ran over to him and they started playing,” Antle said “It was unusual because dogs are usually scared of primates; but they took to each other straight away.”
Craziness. Here are some pictures:
What I want to know is.. does the orangutang actually walk the dog as well? Now, that’d be a good reason to get an orangutang as a pet. So that he can walk you pet dogs. It’s all about the leverage.
