Horse And Baboon Are Animal Best Friends


COMM: They may seem like unlikely friends but Jericho the horse is perfectly happy to
let this baboon laze on his back while they both soak up the sun. 00:20
COMM: These working horses and wild baboons live side by side in the fields next to the
Monkey Land and the Birds of Eden Sanctuaries near Plettenberg Bay, South Africa. 00:36
COMM: As strange as this may seem the animals live happily together, braising for food and
often taking advantage of the compost heap. 00:54
COMM: But its not just the case of tolerating each other as once Jericho has laid down,
this female baboon approaches and starts to groom him. 01:14
COMM: And once the horse’s coat has been titied up, she climbs onto Jericho’s back and settles
down for a rest, to both animals apparent satisfaction.

    Giant dogs and tiny humans
    Vegetarian versions of both
    (Dogs and horses have really similar personalities, to the point where Native Americans called horses Sunk' Tanka (horse, literally "big dog"), Tanka meaning dog and Sunk' Tanka meaning big dog)

    Horse And Baboon Are Animal Best Friends
    BABOONS horse around on the back of a tame steed as it tries to relax in the sun. The troop of baboons groomed the four-legged creature like it was one of their own and even jumped and somersaulted off the horse’s back like it was a trampoline. Docile Jericho welcomed the unlikely attention and allowed the apes to play without complaint. The bizarre scenes were spotted at the Eden Monkeyland and Birds of Eden near Plettenberg Bay, in the Western Cape, South Africa

    Meanwhile humans are busy arguing about race, colour of skin and and bombing each other on whose God is better.

    By the look of the horses ears, the horse is definitely not as happy as you say. Annoyed nut OK.

    I have heard that horses stand even while they sleep. Now this video has proved otherwise. Will anyone correct me ?
