We've had quite a few encounters of animals banding together recently!
There was the bird giving a piggyback flight to a rodent:

According to the BBC, "An Australian photographer has captured a rare moment of animal communion with a shot of a fur seal surfing a humpback whale off the New South Wales coast."
