KUSA - The world is full of seemingly unlikely friendships.

Whether that be Kim Jong Un and Dennis Rodman, a 3-year-old boy and a WWII veteran (a great read), or the recently captured friendship between a badger and a coyote on the northern Colorado prairie.

The U.S. Department of the Interior shared some adorable photos of the two pals hanging out at the National Black-footed Ferrett Conservation Center in northern Colorado.

And it turns out, those type of friendships aren’t all that uncommon and perhaps even strategic.

The conservation center shared the full back story on their Facebook page.
