COMM: They may seem like unlikely friends but Jericho the horse is perfectly happy to
let this baboon laze on his back while they both soak up the sun. 00:20
COMM: These working horses and wild baboons live side by side in the fields next to the
Monkey Land and the Birds of Eden Sanctuaries near Plettenberg Bay, South Africa. 00:36
COMM: As strange as this may seem the animals live happily together, braising for food and
often taking advantage of the compost heap. 00:54

down for a rest, to both animals apparent satisfaction.

The bizarre scenes were spotted at the Eden Monkeyland and Birds of Eden near Plettenberg Bay, in the Western Cape, South Africa
