A Marmoset and Her Scaly Friend, an Iguana Have an Unusual Bond

These amusing photos illustrate a marmoset simply hanging out with an unusual and strange companion — an iguana.

The female white-fronted marmoset can be seen giving warm kisses and even a nuzzle to the green iguana, which is almost as big as her.

Before licking around like another animal, the interested monkey appears to be giving its partner a little massage.

Conny Schmidt of Dusseldorf, Germany, took these stunning photos.

The 58-year-old had heard of their friendship earlier because they are well-known in the locality, so she traveled to Germany to capture them.

“They looked to have a genuine trust for one another.” The marmoset was really interested in the iguana and was touching it.
