Tigers and lions are different, and they can’t really be friends. Well, that’s how people view it. But it turns out that they can be friends.
To be honest, big cats rarely make friends with other species in the wild. But when they are put together in controlled surroundings, they will learn to play and live together.
Do you know that small kids are totally unaware of skin color? Well, they are aware, but they consider it normal.
They don’t feel that people of a different race are any different – we are all people. It’s the grownups who tell them about differences.
Well, these cubs are like that. They are totally unaware of their differences.
They are kids with only one thing on their mind- playtime! Lion cub and tiger cub of African Safari park situated in Oita Prefecture, Japan, behave like best friends.
They play together, sleep together and eat together. And what’s interesting is that adult lions and tigers never attack the other cub.
It is like their kids taught them that we can all be friends. Both animals and humans should listen to their kids more often. Like, always…
Take a look at this heartwarming story about a wonderful friendship.
African Safari is Japan’s biggest safari park, spanning over more than 115 hectares
And it is home to about 70 species and 1,400 animals
The wonderful photos were shared on Twitter by the park’s staff. The new arrivals, a lion and a tiger cub, are seen cuddling each other and playing like they were siblings.
They are totally oblivious to their differences as they take a nap side by side. And it seems that their instincts have yet to kick in as they’re even seen snuggling up to bunnies.
You can view these animals from your car or from one of the park’s theme buses.
Visitors can even pet some of the animals
There are several sets of tiger and lion cubs at the park, but this pair has struck up an unlikely friendship. They were born earlier this year, and the staff says they are growing up quickly.
An adult tiger can reach 98 to 154 in and weigh between 200 and 660 lb. A lion can reach 72–82 inches in length and weigh up to 490 lb.
And take pics with these wonderful cubs
They are adorable
We hope they will continue to be friends when they grow up.
Once again, animals have proved they are better than humans in so many ways. Even though big cats don’t have a friendly nature, these two cubs are playing together like they are from the same mother.
The differences don’t bother them because there are none. They are just little babies looking for a buddy to play with.
The adults create all the problems in the world. There wouldn’t be any segregation and racial prejudice if it were up to kids. Everyone would just play together all day long.
It would be a nice world to live in…
