You're a squirrel, I'm a meerkat... let's face it, this relationship is completely nuts


Pinned down: The squirrel used its meerkat mate as a cushion at a South African animal sanctuary

This affectionate pair weren't about to let their different backgrounds get in the way of a cuddle.

A meerkat and a squirrel make for strange bedfellows, but in a quiet corner of a South African animal sanctuary they were having a ball.

And judging by the serene expression of the meerkat's face, he rather enjoyed the attention of his pen friend as night-time fell.

The pair had been seeking shelter together when they were caught on camera by amateur photographer Heikki Lehvaslaiho, who was visiting the sanctuary with his family.

He didn't manage to discover the true nature of of the animals' relationship but was delighted with the picture of cosy creature comforts.

Perhaps the squirrel was just indulging in a game of Compare The Meerkat.
