A great many Disney films are based around animals forming friendships that would likely never exist in real life. Until they do, that is.
Turns out that many of the famous pairings from Disney movies have indeed been found in nature, and photographed as well. From The Lion King to Bambi to the Jungle Book and more, there are tons of examples of this phenomenon that you can check out below.
I think my favorite is the baby deer who is totally about to be sprayed by a skunk, which is the real life ending of that friendship.
