If someone does you a favor, they’re “being a bro.” It’s just a funny internet term that means you’re being kind or helpful to someone else, as a brother or close friend would. According to the 6.7 million fans on the “Animals Being Bros” subreddit, this is not just a term that can be applied to human beings. Animals can also be bros, and when they are, it’s impossible not to say “awww, haha!”

The rules for Animals Being Bros are simple; moderators won’t accept anything staged, and only truly bro behavior will suffice. As a result, the videos featured here are raw, unfiltered, and utterly heartwarming. Take a look at this week’s cutest examples of animals taking care of each other, humans, and the world… just by being bros.
