A baby Japanese macaque named Miwa-chan rides on the back of his buddy, baby Japanese wild boar, Uribo. Both lost their mother and now are in Fukuchiyama City Zoo, Kyoto, Japan as sheltered wild animals.
The Zoo staff tried many things to cheer up the lonely baby monkey. They found a solution when they mixed monkey and pig together in the same room. The two became great friends, staying together at all times. Miwa-chan’s favorite activity became taking laps around the park on Uribo’s back.
