Monkey Adopts Little Stray Puppy And Pays Attention To Let Him Eat First

It is a proven fact that animals are more likely to relate to their own species. It is natural for animals to be attracted to those that are most similar to them. What is less common is for an animal of one species to interact favorably with a different type of creature.

This was not the case in Rode, India when a rhesus macaque monkey spotted a sweet puppy on the road. The monkey immediately took to the lost puppy, taking it in as its own despite the fact that they were not from the same family of animals. The monkey was a friend and protector to the helpless puppy. No stray dogs would come near the puppy now that it had a monkey standing guard over it all day and night.

The local people said that the relationship was like that of a mother and a child.
