Who says that a predator and prey cannot be best mates?

For about 4 months now, ZhengZhou’s North Gate birds market in China has housed an interesting duo.

Initially meant to be food for the young eagle, the rabbit was tossed into a Chinese professional eagle trainer’s cage, but the eagle was too young and ended up befriending the rabbit instead of eating it.

The two get along great and the rabbit will even clean the eagle’s feathers from time to time, which the eagle seems to appreciate.

That’s one lucky rabbit…
