Baboons And Horses Are Just One Happy And Kinda Strange Family

For beasts that might seem far apart in the animal kingdom, these wild baboons and working horses sure get along.

Quirky footage captured in the fields next to Monkeyland and Birds of Eden wildlife sanctuaries in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa, shows the unlikely friends gathering at a compost heap. A baboon grooms a horse named Jericho before climbing on his back, and according to the Barcroft TV video description, some baboons were also seen doing somersaults off the horse.

We're sure they all had a big laugh about it later.
