We could all learn a little something from these two monitor lizards.

While enjoying a day of swimming at Bangkok’s Lumphini Park in Thailand, the playful guys took a moment to stop and say, “I love you,” as they passed each other. Upon meeting, each lizard wrapped its arms around the other, sharing what looks to be a pretty cozy embrace.

Though we can’t say for sure if this a common practice among members of the scaly species, we will say this: it never hurts to know someone has your back.
