Everyone has an unusual friend or two. This rare look at a wolf and bear friendship is like watching a Disney movie.

Finnish photographer, Lassi Rautiainen, found this female gray wolf and male brown bear interacting each night for ten days straight.

Between the hours of 8 P.M. and 4 A.M., the two animals were inseparable, and even shared food!

“It’s very unusual to see a bear and a wolf getting on like this,” stated Rautiainen.

No-one can know exactly why or how the young wolf and bear became friends. I think that perhaps they were both alone and they were young and a bit unsure of how to survive alone…It is nice to share rare events in the wild that you would never expect to see.

It’s absolutely a rare event, especially to capture on camera. Of all of Finland’s wild animals, these two are certainly a rare pair.

And they are some very cool pictures!
