An unusual trio.
Their name is Balu, Leo, and, of course, Shere Khan. Interspecies friendship between the three deadly predators started when all of them were two months old. Previously, they lived with drug lords, as a symbol of power and social status. Then, during a police raid, they were confiscated and placed in a zoo. Eight years have passed, a chorus of merry trio live in a shelter for animals of Locust Grove (USA, Georgia) and behaves like brothers. Eat, play and sleep together in the general house. Balu now weighs 450 kg, and Leo Sher Khan - to 160 kg. / click for more
they are friends
idk if this is natural but it’s pretty great
Haha, I read about this maybe a couple of years back, when my grandmother sent me an e-mail of the photos. One thing I have never been sure on; is it a lady lion, or a male Tsavo lion?
Either way, the bear and tiger remind me of my dog and cat, and this is cute so SHARIN’ IT.
Leo is definitely a male! I couldn’t find any information on if he was a Tsavo or if it’s some other variety of lion I’m unfamiliar with (I’m not super educated on that stuff in the first place, haha).
I actually recommend the official Flickr for Noah’s Ark (the center they stay at) if you want TONS of pictures of these dudes. They also have some other interesting animal pairs and other awesome animals if you have the time to click through.
