In the past few years, we’ve seen many odd couples among animals. We’ve seen dogs adopting foxes, monkeys with cats, dogs with hamsters, and much more.

There is no racism between animals. Animals take care of each other, and when one is in need or in danger, the other provides shelter.

Biologist Liz Bonnin explores why some of the most bizarre and surprising animals pair up with each other and with us. Liz scours the globe in search of the most extraordinary and cute animal relationships.

You will be surprised by some of the pairings. And Liz managed to find a scientific reason. According to her research, the oxytocin, love hormone, is the reason why some odd animal couples exist.
