This story from Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand shows one of the most unlikely interspecies friendships between Simon the Cow and Leonardo the African spurred tortoise.

Simon the cow was rescued by Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand in February 2016. The young cow lost part of his hind leg after getting caught in a vine.

Leonardo was rescued from a Bangkok zoo in 2013 after the zoo closed down.

The whole staff at Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand fell in love with Simon’s sweet personality and playful nature. They decided to house him temporarily in a large open field enclosure so he could recover before being moved to another enclosure with two other rescued cows.

But to everyone’s surprise, Simon formed a strong bond with Leonardo the tortoise.

They are often seen following each other around, sharing meals, and resting together.

Simon and Leonardo show us that love knows no bounds.
