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.
