Seeing the baby monkeys left alone in the world, a maternal instinct appeared which prompted the pregnant dog to adopt the animal.
The colorful natural world is constantly making mouths open with interesting stories where animals also accept other animals as their own kind and love them as theirs. This is also the case of a pregnant dog and a baby monkey living in a small village in the city of Himachal Pradesh, India.
The special “mother-child” relationship between a dog and a monkey.
During an incident in March 2020, photographer Prakhash Badal came across this strange “mother and daughter” duo. He said: “The other monkey was only about 10 days old after his mother and other adult monkeys were poisoned to death by locals because they thought the animals were destroying their fields. This new monkey- born was lucky to survive and was adopted by a pregnant bitch.
Although dogs and monkeys appear to be two independent animals, there is sometimes conflict around the village, but divine motherhood in this case prevails.
Photographer Prakhash believes that the dog saw the adorable little monkey left alone and that no one cares therefore the instinct of a “mother” in him takes over. The dog therefore adopted a baby monkey despite the difference in species.
“The relationships of this generation are lessons for people, because sometimes a lot of people become selfish and kill each other because of some differences” – said the photographer.
This is not the first time that animals have adopted a different species. There was a cat “stealing” a herd of dogs after experiencing the pain of losing a baby and seeing that the animals were not being taken care of by its mother.
Or a bitch from Korea who felt the poor stray cat accepted as a child, which surprised her owner. Or a cat living at Sadgorod Zoo in Russia adopted … porcupines. Most special is the story of a “mother pig” adopting tigers at the Sriracha Zoo in Thailand after the animal’s mother died. Later, while growing up, the tiger is always wrapped in tangerine with “mother pig”. He often snuggled into the pig’s mother’s arms looking for warmth.
