Every creature, great or small, deserves a lift around sometimes and this is where animals riding animals comes in.
Most animals are inherently adorable when they do most things, like cats wearing monkey suits eating bananas, or lizards snuggling together on a toasty warm rock. However, it’s arguable that potentially the cutest and coolest thing to see are animals helping each other around by physically giving them a ride.
Better have your camera ready to capture these moments because honestly, no one will probably believe you if you don’t have prove. I’ve a friend who claims to have seen three tiny birds riding the back of huge buck, but alas, no photos and now, no one believes him.
Without further ado, here are the best photos of animals riding animals.
