8 Year Old Boy Is Like Real Life Doctor Dolittle

Meet Matteo, a normal boy from Austria with some rather unusual best friends. While most boys and girls his age would be happy with a dog or a cat, Matteo Walch has befriended a group of rather wilder animals, namely Alpine Marmots. Check out the amazing photos below.

The animals, which are normally very wary of humans are perfectly at ease around Matteo and are happy to pose for photos with him and feed from his hands.

Matteo’s mother, Michaela explains, “He loves those animals, and they are not at all afraid of Matteo because he has a feeling towards them and they understand that. We go there every year now for two weeks, it’s amazing to watch the connection between a boy and his animal friends.”
