Do animals love their own offspring or species? Of course, they do. We don’t need to look at Animal Planet to find out this petty news. But can one animal love the babies of another animal – a different species? That is something that we need to think about. Chances are – they may like them, but not really like them as much as they like their offspring.
Well, if you were in Rode, India, then your opinions would have taken a drastic turn. Why? Well, in India, a monkey did something that was almost unimaginable. A rhesus macaque monkey saw a small puppy on the street and immediately adopted it. It was like a parent – trying to protect this little munchkin from other stray dogs. No one dared to come near them.
The locals were delighted to see this wonderful scene. Their affection for each other – almost like a mother and child – made their heart melt. So, the local people started setting down food nearby for the monkey and the adopted puppy. Surprisingly, the monkey actually let the puppy have the first bite.
This really shows us the amount of love that animals can share – almost parental love. We could really learn something about bonds and relationships from this monkey-puppy bond.
