Deer and Agouti Become Unlikely BFFs at South American Sanctuary

A red brocket deer and a brown agouti became fast friends after they were both rescued by the same animal sanctuary in Bolivia.

Footage by Natalia Cara de Medeiros perfectly showcases the adorable duo’s close relationship, as the agouti grooms its unlikely best friend.

According to de Medeiros, both critters were saved from animal trafficking.

She told Storyful that after growing up together at La Senda Verde, an animal refuge in Yolosa, the pair developed a “special friendship” and “do everything together”. Credit: Natalia Cara de Medeiros via Storyful
