The Most Unlikely and Lovable Friends Are a Disabled Calf and a Giant Tortoise


This pair of animals were rescued in different circumstances, but when they arrived at a sanctuary, they formed an instant bond that led to the best and most unexpected friendship.

Simon’s leg had to be amputated when he was only six months old after becoming entangled in vines. Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand (WFFT) was in charge of fitting the calf with a prosthesis and transporting it to their sanctuary, where they formed an unexpected and beautiful friendship.

The calf was not ready to interact with the other rescued cows when it arrived at the sanctuary, so it was placed in a large enclosure to recover and grow a little more.

Leonardo, on the other hand, is an African spurred tortoise (Centrochelys sulcata) who was rescued by WFFT after being imprisoned in a zoo in Bangkok.
