Deer and Rodent Best Friends Snuggle in Bolivia

Two “inseparable” best friends – a brocket deer and a rodent called an agouti – living at a rescue center in Bolivia snuggled up close in a sweet video of their grooming behavior shared to YouTube.

Gosia Zdziechowska shared video of a brocket deer, Bambino, and its agouti friend, sharing a cuddle. Both live at La Senda Verde, an animal refuge in Yolosa, Bolivia.

“They are inseparable. They eat, sleep, and play together” Zdziechowska said. “They also take care of each other.”

More than 800 rescued animals of 64 different species live at La Senda Verde, according to its website. Credit: Gosia Zdziechowska via Storyful
