Wild animals never cease to amaze us with their unlikely friendship. These wonderful, gentle creatures have the ability to love and comfort each other, like human beings. But this special friendship between different species will, probably, melt your hearts.
Meet Pea, an ostrich and Jotto, a little elephant, who farmed a unique relationship at the elephant orphanage, where they met each other for the first time. When the volunteers of Sheldrick Wildlife rescued the baby elephant, he was only 1-month-old. He received his second chance for life.
Shortly after this rescue, the sanctuary workers found two orphan ostrich chicks, Pea and Pod, who were brought to the same sanctuary, where the baby elephant was. Nobody could imagine that they will get along with each other, even more, will become friends. They were transferred by plane to the National Park in Nairobi. Here the little creatures had a new life.
The newborn friendship flourished here. Pea was all the time next to Jotto, she gave him her comfort and love, which needed the little orphan elephant so much. It was their caring relationship, which helped both of them to overcome their pain, their lost. Pea and Jotto were inseparable, they were spending their entire time together.
The ostrich spending her days with the elephant herd started to think she is a part of it. Jotto is so happy to have such a playful and caring friend, like Pea. They enjoyed each other’s cuddles all the time. One they, when they will be healed and strong and grown up, they will go back to the wild.
