Duck, Owl Photos Show The Most Adorable Friendship Ever

The best friend bond is something that can last a lifetime, and for these two winged pals, it looks like they'll be buds for years to come.

Chop-suey, a baby white-crested runner duck, and Larch, a baby long-eared owl, met at the Kirkleatham Owl Center in northern England earlier this month. The two have since become inseparable, sleeping and cuddling with each other.

A spokesperson for the center said the pair will eventually need to be separated due to "differing needs as they develop," Zooborns reported. But for now, the cuteness can continue.

While they may be adorable, make sure to keep baby ducks outside as they don't make for good pets. The average duck poops once every 15 minutes and the CDC recommends washing your hands after coming into contact with them as they "often" carry Salmonella.

Take a look at some more photos and a video of the pair below.
