Unusual animal friendships


Animals don’t always get along well with each other, especially if at least one of them is a carnivore. But at the Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Park in Wynnewood, Oklahoma, a baby chimp, a baby wolf, and two baby tigers have bonded together and become inseparable. But since they’re cubs, it’s only a matter of time until they outgrow their childish fondness and become mortal enemies, right?
Enter another unlikely animal trio: Baloo the bear, Shere Khan the tiger, and Leo the lion. The trio were rescued during a drug raid in Atlanta, Georgia, in 2001 when they were barely three months old. Today, they’re fully grown adults, with Baloo tipping the scales at 450 kilos (1,000 lbs) and Leo and Shere Khan each coming in at 159 kilos (350 lbs). The three animals all live in the same enclosure at the Noah’s Ark Animal Rescue Center in Locust Grove, Georgia, and are the best of friends. They not only eat and sleep together, but also hug, wrestle, frolic, and do all the things normally reserved for a box full of kittens.
