Unlikely Friendships: 50 Remarkable Stories from the Animal Kingdom
By: Jennifer Holland
Friendships begin with similar interests, out of respect and sometimes need. I found this article in the June 26th, 2011 issue of Parade Magazine about most unusual friendships called "Best Friends Forever" by Joanne Kaufman. Ms. Kaufman writes about conservation biologist Jennifer Holland and her book Unlikely Friendships. Ms. Holland writes about extraordinary bonds between animals of different species. To see more photos of unusual best friends in the animal kingdom go to www.Parade.com/aminals. I think you'll like it.
