An unusual friendship between a mammal and a cold-blooded reptile blossomed in a zoo in Germany.
A female white-fronted marmoset was photographed getting cozy with a green iguana who appears to be larger than her. The friendly primate was spotted giving the iguana friendly nibbles and loving kisses. Marmosets are known for exhibiting this behaviour with other primates.
The inquisitive monkey was even caught giving the iguana a neck rub at one point despite the big lizard’s sharp claws and scaly skin. The pair seemingly enjoy each other’s company after being placed in the same cage in Krefeld Zoo.
The unlikely duo’s friendship has caught the attention of people in the town including Ms. Conny Schmidt who snapped the pals’ heartwarming photos.
“They seemed to really trust each other. The marmoset was very intrigued, touching the iguana.I had heard about them and their relationship as it is well known in the area, so these weren’t just lucky pictures,” Schmidt said.

The Amazing Friendship Between a Bear, Lion, and Tiger Who All Live Peacefully Together!
What happens when a bear, a lion, and a tiger meet? I never would have guessed this.
Although science, more or less, is mostly accurate on its predictions regarding suspected consequences during a predator and prey encounter, the unique blend of camaraderie of what you are about to watch is very phenomenal.
Meet 12-Year-Old Baloo, American black bear that has spent most of his childhood in the Wild Life Sanctuary in Atlanta. Lucky for him, he is well accompanied by no other than his own pretty “well-balanced pack”. Who are they? Well, as confusing and surprising as it may be, his buddies involved a lion named Leo, and a 12-year-old Bengal tiger named Shere-Khan.
Although many, including animal lovers, find it odd, this only proves that science still needs more avenues to explore and interpret. “Slowly but surely we’re hearing about more and more observations of strong emotional attachments that cross species lines. These friendships, unlikely friendships, in a good number of cases, show that emotions including joy, love, empathy, compassion, kindness, and grief can readily be shared by improbable friends including predators and prey such as a cat and a bird, a snake and a hamster, and a lioness and a baby oryx,” Dr. Marc Beckoff wrote of animal odd couples in Psychology Today.
