Stop the presses! This is simply the most darling thing we've seen in awhile!
Everyone loves when different species have somehow created a friendship, we've seen it many times and with a variety of different animals.
We have never seen Orangutans playing with otters, however! And our hearts are simply melting!
24-year-old Orangutan named Ujian is smitten with his little otterly adorable friends.
The pictures are from a zoo in Belgium, where the animals live together at Pairi Daiza zoo in Domaine du Cambron, as part of a program designed to maintain the primates' well-being in captivity.

Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This week's spotlight goes to Polly and Paxton!
This adorable duo comes with such a heartwarming story!
Paxton, a 12-year-old Labrador retriever, immediately bonded with a days-old blind kitten, Polly. Polly was found crying within a thicket of trees when owner Morgan Webb discovered her. She brought in the kitten and began to give her a bath.
Paxton, never leaving Polly's side from the moment she arrived, stood by and sniffed and nuzzled Polly the moment her bath was completed.
When a few drops of kitten milk spilled from the bottle and onto Polly, Webb stated this moment led to their inseparable bond. "Paxton would lick, lick, lick her, and he fell in love. I think that is where their relationship really started." Webb tells PEOPLE.
Since then, their bond has been so strong and loving -- and it shows.
Real friendships are hard to come by. It's not so easy to find a true friend who you can come to with all your thoughts and emotions. A true friend who is always there and will never judge you. Sure, they may joke around and name call you to your face, but they would never do so behind your back. The list of what makes a true friend can go on and on. Yes, it's rare. So when you do have that true friend, you don't want to let something so special go.
...Even if that friend is an apparition!
This comic by Tumblr user, ReddPenn, is a classic and should be given a spotlight more than once!
Meet the unlikely duo that has the internet melting! Herman (the pigeon) and Lundy (the 8-week-old Chihuahua), both at The Mia Foundation, an organization dedicated to giving pets with birth defects across the country a fighting chance.
Herman is a pigeon who cannot fly, and Lundy is a special needs Chihuahua.
Herman and Lundy were both placed on the same pillow at the New York-based non-profit and they took to each other right away!
"I set Herman on a dog bed and started caring for Lundy, and I decided to carefully put Lundy in the same dog bed next to him," Sue Rogers, who founded The Mia Foundation in 2012, told PEOPLE, of how the adorable friendship moment started.
The pics have since gone viral!
"Is there a typo in the title? Don't you mean Valentine's Day", I'm hearing you ask?
Nope - Galentine's Day is a concept, or holiday, created by Leslie Knope from Parks and Rec. It takes place on February 13, when, in her words, "My lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It's like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas."
So basically, it's a time for us babes to kick it back at brunch while celebrating ourselves and each other, and telling Valentine's Day to do one. Sounds pretty good to me! In the spirit of this great day, here are some of the best Galentine's Day tweets on the internet; inspired by Leslie Knope's genius, empowering women the world over, and giving strong female friendships the credit they deserve.
"The Office" is, in my opinion, one of the best sitcoms to have ever been created. A show that has become a household classic, we have been blessed with nine seasons of laugh-out-loud, cringeworthy and heart-warming moments. Its genius lies in the way we get to know and fall in love with the characters and their idiosyncrasies as the show progresses. From Jim and Dwight's constant pranking to Michael's compulsive need to be adored by everyone, the characters and their interactions are understandable and relatable to the masses.
But most of all, I think the show is about the complex pursuit of love. "The Office" shows us just how painful but beautiful it can be to find and maintain true, lasting love. In honor of the lead-up to Valentine's Day, here are some of the show's most famous couples' and the journeys they went on to find love with each other.
It has come to the worlds attention that coyotes and badgers are often in some sort of partnership when it comes to hunting.
It's a pretty rare phenomenon to see two different species of predators working together to get their next meal.
According to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, "Studies have shown that this unusual relationship is beneficial for both species. The coyote can chase down prey if it runs and the badger can dig after prey if it heads underground into its burrow systems."
Who knew?! Pretty amazing to see these two work together! And thanks to the Peninsula Open Space Trust, a recent video of the duo, on the hunt, has come out.
Twitter user, Russ McSpadden, shared the video and sparked a thread about this wholesome friendship that users have come to love.
Anyone out of college will understand how difficult it is to make new friends as an adult in the real world. Unless you're going out every single weekend and putting yourself out there, you may have to just settle for conversing with your coworkers at lunch to satisfy that lonely feeling. Either way, we wish you luck.
Here are fifteen memes for people who have actually managed to snag a best friend.
This guy shared a powerful story on Twitter about an experience with his buddy, where he ended up having to spend the night after having one too many drinks. From there, it ends up being a wholesome tale of his friend being a genuinely great dude, who didn't feel the need to defend his actions just because of what society might expect him to do. Good stuff!
As 2019 comes to a close we find ourselves dwelling on the things that went wrong, and the ways we let ourselves and others down. Being self aware is definitely important, but it's also imperative that we not beat ourselves up. It's important to look back on all the good things that happened this year, whether they benefited us, the world, or just another person in need. These memes, tweets, and posts are all great reminders that the year wasn't a wash.
