Against all odds, an unexpected camaraderie has blossomed in a Japanese zoo between a newborn tiger and a lion cub, throwing conventional wisdom about big cats out the window.
Adorable snapshots from African Safari Zoo, located in Japan’s southern Oita prefecture, depict a tender bond between the two feline cubs.
As if ignorant of their species’ distinctions, they’re pictured cuddling and playfully wrestling like littermates.
These darling cubs are seen blissfully napping side-by-side, further proving their surprising compatibility.
And not only with each other – their innocence has even led them to snuggle up with bunnies, suggesting their predatory instincts are yet to surface.
Born earlier this year in the zoo, these charming furballs have quickly become social media sensations.
The zoo staff, responsible for sharing their heartwarming escapades on Twitter, has since amassed thousands of enthusiastic followers, all besotted with the adorable duo.
