That is so sweet! I always love it when they have the relationships that transcend species (even platonic ones), which is one reason Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite tales (but my sister loves it more), but also why I hate that he turned into an ugly human at the end of the Disney version (if they learned to love as they are, why does he have to change?). Obviously, this hydra isn't going to turn into a human or anything, so the next best thing after this image would be some tender moment (even if they perhaps had injuries from a fight) like her forehead-touching with one of the heads or something.
