Animals, like humans, can establish great ties of friendship even between different races that you never thought you would see together.
We've all seen dogs and cats that get along well when they grow up in company and become the best possible friends, but the story we bring you today is much more curious than a dog and a cat, since an elephant and an ostrich have become inseparable.
The ostrich is called Pea and was saved by a rescue team while searching for the elephant baby, Jotto. The two met when they were taken to the refuge and quickly congenialized.
Jotto had fallen into a well which caused him to be separated from his family. It was the rescue team of David Sheldrick, head of the Wildlife Trust organization, who found him and took him to the shelter where he met Pea.
Pea came to the shelter in 2014 with his brother Pod, where they have grown up and are perfectly healthy.
Pod is no longer very close to the oasis area destined for elephants in the refuge but Pea does the opposite and will always welcome new animals like this little giraffe named Kiko.
Pea believes without a doubt that he is part of the elephant family, since he spends all his time day with them and even sleep with Jotto daily.
All species are welcome in this shelter and live together, but certainly there is no relationship as curious and unique as Pea and Jotto have.
