View some interesting stories about animals who have formed bonds with another animal of a different species. Mother Nature Network shows that some animals can display a great capacity to look after and bond with a member of another species and it seems that they also appear to form these bonds for no reason other than companionship.

Koko, the Gorilla and Her Cat
The most famous bonding relationship of an animal to an animal of another species is Koko the Gorilla and her pet cat. Koko, who used sign language to communicate and could understand a great many human words asked for a kitten for her birthday. She named the kitten, All Ball, and was very gently and loving with the kitten, treating it like a baby gorilla.

Tarra the Elephant and Her Dog
The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee is the home of Tarra the Elephant. When a stray dog wandered onto the Sanctuary's property, rather than scare off the intruder, one elephant in particular, Tarra, immediately welcomed the stray with open arms. Before long, the two became inseparable. In fact, Tarra seemed to spend more time with Bella than she did with other elephants. View the video to watch Tarra and Belle together.
