Picture a live taxi alligator giving rides to a crane, turtles coming together to help another flailing turtle flip over in the water, and a courageous cat saving a child under attack from a stray dog. How about a crow putting a plastic bottle into the recycle bin and deer bowing their heads to people giving them food? As unusual as these images may seem, they are all real-life encounters caught on camera! “Animals are often way smarter than you think, and even though they may not understand what we say, they can understand the emotions that we express.” This YouTube video is a compilation of kind, smart, and compassionate actions shown by animals, showing beautiful moments of heroic animals saving the life of others and heartwarming stories of special interspecies friendships.
