Charles Darwin would be amazed to see predators becoming friends, but that’s just what happened and was captured on film for tonight’s hour-long special presentation of Nat Geo’s UNLIKELY ANIMAL FRIENDS 2 that features some of the most astounding pairings of animals living peacefully together.

You’ll see Eskimo dogs frolicking with polar bears; a hippopotamus that makes daily visits to the human home of a South African couple; a golden retriever and leopard growing up together; “Themba” the orphaned baby elephant who forms friendship bonds with “Albert” the sheep; two dogs and a goat become traveling companions, and a lion, tiger and bear that became inseparable playmates.

This hour-long television special, rated TV-G for all-family viewing, airs Friday, January 7, 2011 at 9:00 p.m. with encore presentations on Saturday, January 8 at 12:00 a.m. and Friday January 14 at 5:00 p.m.

Immediately following UNLIKELY ANIMAL FRIENDS 2, is a repeat of the original hour-long special, UNLIKELY ANIMAL FRIENDS, which is also rated TV-G.

For your viewing pleasure below, a video preview of tonight’s program, and once you see the “Lion and Tiger and Bear Oh My!” you’ll be amazed at the transformative bond of friendship between these cross-species, which literally defies the laws of nature.
