About This Item: 
It is exactly like Isaiah 11:6: "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid " Written by National Geographic magazine writer Jennifer Holland, Unlikely Friendships documents one heartwarming tale after another of animals who, with nothing else in common, bond in the most unexpected ways A cat and a bird A mare and a fawn An elephant and a sheep A snake and a hamster The well-documented stories of Koko the gorilla and All Ball the kitten, and the hippo Owen and the tortoise Mzee And almost inexplicable stories of predators befriending prey--an Indian leopard slips into a village every night to sleep with a calf A lionness mothers a baby oryx Ms Holland narrates the details and arc of each story, and also offers insights into why--how the young leopard, probably motherless, sought maternal comfort with the calf, and how a baby oryx inspired the same mothering instinct in the lionness Or, in the story of Kizzy, a nervous retired Greyhound, and Murphy, a red tabby, how cats and dogs actually understand each other's body language With Murphy's friendship and support, Kizzy recovered from life as a racing dog and became a confident, loyal family pet.These are the most amazing friendships between species, collected from around the world and documented in a selection of full-color candid photographs
