I just recently found these, and I thought it would be a great bit to share with you. Because though it is important to be informed of the goings on
in our world, it is important to keep a positive (or balanced) head while doing so. It is extremely important. Consider this for our health, and to
remind us to continue make positive affirmations. If anyone has videos or pictures you'd like to share, please do.
If you are feeling grave or grievous, depressed or oppressed, remember these awesome animals learning to get along with eachother:
I think there's a conspiracy with these animals "getting along" and such. I don't trust it I tell you.
If people assist these animals with fuel of hunger, the animal will attempt to support the other for companionship. In the wild this is not possible
and the animal will attack the other to survive. If we help, we make a difference to everything!
Not true, it will never happen if we remain jaded. We have the capacity to do our part, can't blame ourselves if we have not been "programmed" to do
so for so long. Arrogance is mankind's main vice, we hold it over all other animals. When we actually do help, it's never "in vain"... unless it is

Aww these are just gorgeous. We should all be so lucky to have friendships with animals such as these. But I'm not so certain that is a mouse. Unless
it's a rat sized mouse. Maybe they grow them big over there?
Predators do not always eat the prey species in the wild. There is the video of the lioness adopting a baby antelope after her cubs are killed. There
are a few more rare examples of this happening in the wild. It is, I think, always a female adopting a baby of another species. It could hint to the
deep mothering nature of all female species, wild or not.
The lieoness eventually loses the baby, but she adopted another, wildebeest maybe, shortly after, although it also dies. These examples are few and
far between but can be a signal for deeper emotions present in animals to some extent. Maybe it's evolution of wilder animals, or maybe it's just
mothering instinct, but it's incredible regardless.

thank you for the smiles and reminder ... not everyone enjoys symbiotic relationships with animals or gets to witness such.
i was first introduced to such a thing when our dog birthed 11 pups and a week later the cat delivered 4 kittens. Before the 2nd week, mama cat
(Misty) disappeared ... within 12hrs of her absence, the mama Shepherd dog (Heidi) introduced herself to the kittens (eyes not yet opened), then began
nurturing and nuzzling them. Before long, they were suckling and feeding on Heidi (breasts).
I was in shock for more than moments. Back then (70s-80s) such response was unheard of (at least in our backwoods) and certainly not expected.
Misty never returned and Heidi raised those kittens right alongside her pups, almost as though she was 'directed' to, although no human ever made
such an inference or suggestion. we just observed in total amazement. Thanx
welcome to the WILD kingdom ... a bit squeeeeemish are ya?
not sure why you posted such a non-applicable video but ya know, sometimes animals do the darndest things ... now, why are we restricted from making
and acting on such decisions? didn't those cubs have a 'right' to life? so, should we prosecute the killer papa or maybe just pay damages to the
local zoo for their potential losses?
really now, what does your video have to do with symbiotic relationships at all?
I feel a bit bad about introducing something negative into a thread like this but that second video made me quite worried and cringe a bit.
I've worked with Sea Turtle charities a lot and what I see happening in that video is slightly distressing, whenever I have worked with them it has
been an overriding concern to interfere with the Turtles natural birth / nest leaving cycle as little as possible, due to the fact that there is so
much that we still don't know about these animals and how our actions could effect them.
Sea Turtles will for example return to the same beach that they hatched on to lay their own eggs, crossing hundreds of miles of ocean and some of
these beaches have been nesting sites for hundreds if not thousands of years, taking away their ability to identify "their" beach and hatching them in
an artificial environment seems like a pretty bad idea to me.
Sorry about the negativity...
To make up for it here are some turtles that are being born in a more natural way
Also if anyone wants to give some time to one of these charities they always want volunteers, here is
the one that I used to work with
