Let's face it, every now and then we all need a helping hand. There are certain things in life that are just too hard to pull off alone, and in such instances, nothing’s better than a pal to team up with. This holds true even in the animal kingdom, and occasionally even results in some unlikely alliances being formed. That’s why we’ve put together this collection of photos of animals working together, which feature animal teamwork at its most adorable.
Here you’ll find a place where a variety of animals including bears, lizards, and even cats and dogs put aside their differences in order to attain the truly important things in life. For instance, you’ll see these pairs combine their powers in an attempt to obtain lunch meat, bite high hanging leaves, and spy through peepholes they couldn’t possibly access on their own.
You’ll see Chihuahuas lifted to whole new heights (literally) with the help of much taller animals. You’ll witness tough animals protect their cuddlier friends. And you'll see surrogate moms step up to the plate, whether or not the baby in question happens to be of their own species.
So get ready to have your heart melted (in a good way) by these animal teamwork pictures. They may not restore your faith in humanity, but they’ll at least remind you that there’s always the animal kingdom to turn to, and that sometimes that’s where you’ll find the most humanity of all.
