Tanja Askani posts her photographs online at fotocommunity.de. She’s now captured the most moving different-species animal friends - a deer and a rabbit - who seem to LOVE each other’s company. Some of us have seen similar friendship bonds between different animals (no, we are NOT talking about human to dog or human to cat).
Below, you’ll see other animals that love each other in a common compound. We’ve seen dogs and cats as best friends who must spend the night snuggled together, right?
Tanja is one of a kind certainly, because if you view her portfolio, you begin to realise that she not only loves photography, she LOVES animals, and some of the kind which we fear, such as white wolves.

About Tanja Askani:
Tanja Askani is Czech author and animal scientist who lives with her husband at a game park in Germany. Originally, they had established a falconry at the park, bred raptors, and presented bird shows with their birds of prey.
Then her husband brought her an orphaned three-day-old wolf pup and Askani’s was introduced into lupine life. The orphan wolf, ‘Flocke’ , meaning ‘Snowflake’ in German, was weak and required intensive care given by Askani and her dog, Snowflake eventually lived.
The bond between Askani and Sonwflake has survived its return to the game park and Snowflake’s mating with another hand-reared wolf. Eventually, a third, younger male wolf was added later and eventually all three wolves treated the humans like auxiliary wolves.
Barbara Hoffert, Library Journal, Nov 2006:
“This is not a scientific treatise but a warm and carefully observed portrait of one woman’s efforts to change our perceptions of the sadly reviled wolf. The numerous photographs–close up, striking, and informative–will make animal lovers weak in the knees.”
Nancy Bent, Booklist, Oct 2006:
“. . . the charming, diary-like writing style and the plethora of color close-ups of the wolves will enchant wolf-lovers.” “. . . great insight into the world of the wolf. . . . the charming, diary-like writing style and the plethora of color close-ups of the wolves will enchant wolf lovers.”
