Love Knows No Boundaries

The growing number of stories surrounding these unlikely friendships have generated curiosity among the scientific community, encouraging interest in topics of animal altruism and interspecies bonds.

What Scientists Say

How is a relationship between two totally different species possible? Barbara J. King from the College of William and Mary suggests some criteria for the association to occur. She proposes sustaining the relationship for some time; there should also be mutuality, wherein both animals interact, and certain adjustments to meet the needs of the relationship.
