There's a lot of animal stories online these days about the unusual pairing of animals, where one species becomes the BFF of another. I've personally researched and written about tigers with bears, goose and a puppy and various wildlife in Africa.
Do you remember this African fable: There once lived a colossal, clumsy animal named "Elephant" who had a thorn in his foot and a minuscule, fluffy, rodent named "Mouse" that was the only creature able to pull it out?
It's not a secret that honey bees are facing extinction. The causes are varied, including pesticides, parasites and a condition called 'colony collapse disorder,' a dynamic that occurs when the worker bees die off exponentially.
