I always wondered what kind of weird friendships or weird situations between animals that have happened since the start of life on earth, imagine how much cool stuff that have happened that didn't get caught on camera and we'll never know about it.


DasBarenJager

I think in Yellowstone they have documented flocks of ~~crows~~ ravens working with packs of wolves to mutual benefit. The crows will alert the wolves to recently dead animals and the wolves will break apart the carcass enough that the crows can also eat it. Some wolves and crows seem to "play" with each other too.


AgtSquirtle007

Ravens, actually (here’s the thing, blah blah etc.). It’s awesome. They’ll literally grab sticks to play tug of war with the pups.

I once trusted Ravens. Nevermore.


thewafflestompa

Lamar Jackson almost fucked up my fantasy season, too.


commit_me_bro

Damn. That might be another way they find carcasses 😨


DaleDimmaDone

I’ve heard of birds leading other birds into traffic but never this. Very interesting thank you for the story!


Soulerrr

It's possible. They have a long memory, are very smart (like surprisingly smart), and they hold grudges. On the plus side they also remember nice people/animals.


Miss_Tangawizi

Corvids (not COVID!) are believed to be some of the smartest animals on earth. There is a interesting documentary about it but I don't remember what it's called. Some years ago my bf hit a magpie on his bike. He was shocked and stopped to help the poor bird but then it's magpie friend/spouse started attacking him and my bf had no choice but to flee the area. The incident happened on a small path next to our (previous) apartment which we used all the time. The magpie witness didn't forget though and every time he tried to take the path he was attacked and chased away.


Soulerrr

Corvids of a feather murder together. Now that's what I call a wingman! >!Sorry not sorry lol.!<


Miss_Tangawizi

Can't blame it lol


WhereTheHighwayEnds

Ravens tried to get my dogs to chase them off a cliff...


Crickaboo

Was your dog a coyote? Was this raven a roadrunner type? I totally believe it.


InterestingTry5190

Was a giant anvil involved?


Whomping_Willow

Damn thats premeditated murder!


Fuzzyphilosopher

So hunting then.


roywoodsir

Raven mom didn’t raise no dummy.

Not just figuratively grab the sticks? Woah!

I've seen this stuff too.

Veikkar1i

It was on some documentary on TV . No way I can find it anymore.

Not just recently dead. They will call out the locations of live animals too.


shadowman2099

"I had a nightmare of Wolf eating Raven."


Baelzebubba

Not on camera but I saw a sad tale of animal loyalty. Driving home I see something on the road ahead. It is moving/struggling. I think half dead dog... get closer and it is a racoon. Two racoons. One is *right* run over. Like innards are now outwards. His cohort has him by the hands and is trying to pull him off the road. As I get closer it gives up its effort and gets off the road. I watched that guy leave and as he climbed over the guard rail he looked back one last time to his fallen comrade. I think about that look quite often.


Fuzzyphilosopher

That's something to see. I don't know what to say about it, but it's very moving and i've seen enough of mammals not to find it surprising. I suppose I'm quite baffled by how for so very long people thought they were so separate and superior to other animals.


Baelzebubba

When we have countries giving the power of sentience to creatures, legally, in 2021 it makes sense. Why would a racoon not be sentient? Or a bull, Spain? It is our minimizing of nature and our ignorance of language that allows this.

It's almost like they are smart enough to work together instead of fighting. ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|shrug)


preserved_fish

A lot of human conflict arises precisely because we work together so much.


waterbaby66

Hello humanity?!?! Take a clue from the animal world, lol!!!!!


ericstern

I don’t know if this would be a great analogy for humanity. They are working together to screw over a third group of animals.


fishers86

So, humanity?


HardWorking4Pennys

So, Life as we know it?


ericstern

I meant that it wouldn't be a great analogy for humanity *to use an an example* Thought it would be implied based on the previous comment!


NerdyNord

I get what you're going for here, but humans are arguably the best at working together. At the very least it's a huge part of our success as a species.


CassandraVindicated

Coyote follows the bear for scraps, bear tolerates the coyote because it's not enough meat for the energy needed to kill it.


TheReverseShock

You mean smart enough to fight together

Now I just have this image of a Tyrannosaurus rex and a smaller species of theropod just chilling and walking through the Cretaceous forest of Hell's Creek like two buddies on a walk


JesusSaysitsOkay

The long neck was definitely friends with tryseratops (spelling?)


BZenMojo

And the duckbill and the flyer. Actually, the triceratops was a dick. (I love/hate that 52 movies later every generation will get this reference.)


solisie91

I wonder this constantly. What amazing and cool things have been lost to time? What religions, languages, animals, oddities, will never be known again?


gunsof

We already know there was loads, just with humans have Neanderthals and Denisovans having had relationships. At some point in our history we were able to communicate with other intelligent apes like us on this planet.


NerdyNord

It's crazy to think at one point there were multiple species with our level of intelligence. Sure they were very closely related to us, but still.


JesusSaysitsOkay

This is even better then the coyote and badger dual


BZenMojo

Coyotes and badgers are actually common pairings in the wild. They're like the land version of eels and groupers.


J-Love-McLuvin

Yeah there’s some really oddball symbiotic things going on out there. I am also aware of coyotes and badgers hanging out. I saw a documentary about Africa that told the story of how baboons and a very specific pride of lions struck up a partnership. The deal: The baboons would not alert (screech and yell) when they saw the lions so as not to send all the animals scattering. In exchange they could safely hang out and walk amongst the lions, i.e. have protection. How this played out in the real world is some antelope would show up and walk around, give a nod to the baboons who were just hanging out. Wham! Zoink! BIF! The lions would pop out of the bushes, run past the treacherous baboons and catch an unsuspecting antelope. Quite remarkable.


A-weema-weh

Think about that often, I really like the idea of it as well. I sometimes wonder about what insane things my ancestors may have gone through that I will never know. Or what insane coincidences that may have happened. Maybe one day everybody on earth farted at the same time and we didn’t even know it!


Honda_TypeR

This one time a Trex had a threesome with a Stegosaurs and a Velociraptor


johnsgrove

This is what I love best about the internet

The video of the coyote and badger toddling off together will stay with me forever.

Why chase your food when you can have your big friend dig through dumpsters?


Bullen-Noxen

I think I saw an animal documentary about how the bear & coyote/fox/wolf, cohabitate, by one finding food, & the other waiting for the other to finish so they can get the rest. I forgot where I saw it. I think it was on Netflix.

Coyote keeps a lookout and helps trap prey, bear provides ample quantities of shit and carcasses to chew on. A match made in heaven.


clopz_

Roadrunner is gonna have a bad time now


YddishMcSquidish

Idk man, road runner was always just vibing doing good own thing. Coyote was after him, and he just ran away. I don't think bear is going to help with catching a much faster prey. Anyways, sorry for ruining the joke.


Bullen-Noxen

There was at least 1 episode where the road runner got his desserts.


TheInsurgence

It’s a Disney movie


nukefudge

Seems like they're going on a journey to rescue their emu friend, who got kidnapped by two poachers, one fat one and one skinny one. Isn't that sort of how it goes?


The5Virtues

Yep. They’ll sing a traveling song next, then hit a setback and have a small argument that they both get too invested in. They’ll part ways but both continue trying to rescue their pal. They’ll run into each other again and remember how much they need one another to rescue their buddy, then they’ll sing a friendship duet. Finally they’ll overcome the poachers, rescue the emu, and have a big chase scene song as they flee and eventually overcome their foes.


nukefudge

There's also that one scene with a hamster eating far too many pancakes. Something for all ages!

IronAbsCrabs

Brother Bear 3: Coyote & Me


Baelzebubba

Symbiosis is present between species all throughout the animal kingdom. And all the *other* kingdoms too! There is the Water Buffalo and the Cattle Egret. An Egret gets a free ride, a great vantage point for hunting and a Buffalo get any ticks and lice removed! Win/win. Zebras and Ostriches hang together. Zebras can't see well but have a great sense of smell. Ostriches see excellently but can't smell for shit. This helps both, as they are both prey for faster animals. In this case... a bear gets a hyper aware, loud and a watchful, loyal partner. The coyote gets to eat fresh bear shit.


GraniteGeekNH

Write a couple songs and you've got a Disney buddy movie

symboisis is VERY common in the natural world, just not as common in higher life-forms For Example, Humans, By Weight, are less human than bacteria (more bacteria than human)

That is incredible. I wonder if these relationships occur more frequently around human settlements where they tend to scavenge more. I’d like to think that maybe they’re tracking a deer together.

It's always nice when your snack follows you for later


AgtSquirtle007

Bear would have to be pretty desperate to try to eat something that can both fight back and run faster than it. That bear looks pretty healthy. Coyote is safe.


SissyBearRainbow

Yup, I agree. If he's hungry enough though, there's dinner.


Gerasia_Glaucus

Had the same thought xD

Bear: Come with me, I will show you my kids

Coyote is just waiting for some bear poop to eat.

haole360

Animals will rarely form bonded pairs consisting of two different species usually for food and protection. It almost always involves one of them being a canine of some sort.

I'm not a wildlife expert, so as speed goes, could the bear catch a coyote if he wanted? Doesn't seem likely to me...

Can you imagine seeing a coyote and being afraid, then you look over and see the coyote has a fucking bear friend.

Coyote looks around sus: I swear it feels like there’s someone watching us. Grizzly: Oh, you’re always paranoid. Keep walking.

Bear and Coyote: hakuna matata!


Creme_Bru-Doggs

Oddly enough, lone Coyotes and Badgers hang out a LOT. They kind of cover each other's weaknesses while hunting. As properly clever animals, they're more than happy to work with other species. And judging how their population has exploded with humans in North America, the other species doesn't even have to know they're participating.

be great if human came into picture and coyote and bear instantly acted as if they were at odds with each other. the jokes been on us humans all along.
