Here at Bored Panda, we’ve witnessed a lot of strange animal partnerships. Elephants and dogs. Cats and foxes are two of the most dangerous animals on the planet. Giraffes and ostriches, too. Nothing compares to witnessing these three unexpected pals – an American black bear, an African lion, and a Bengal tiger – coexist together. This unique friendship is difficult to beat.
Baloo the bear, Leo the lion, and Shere Khan the tiger have coexisted harmoniously at Noah’s Ark Animal Shelter in Georgia for the last 15 years.
