Wildlife observers and Native Americans in times past have long known that coyotes and badgers occasionally team up and hunt together. In this unlikely interspecies friendship, they have also been known simply to enjoy hanging out together! See how playful and happy the coyote is as it greets the badger in this video.

The badger digs quickly and can scout out rodents that the coyote can then pounce upon. Each appears to be happy and, importantly, saves energy in this hunting association. They have not, however, been known to be generous about sharing the meal! (Badgers eat their prey underground, coyotes above-ground.)
