In the animal kingdom — where distinction between potential predators and preys are always maintained — from time to time, rare stories of cross-species friendships do emerge. Instances of cats adopting puppies or the other way around are not unheard of. An orangutan at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, took a bunch of tiger cubs in its care after it saw the caregivers feeding them.

Watch the cute video here.

The orangutan seems to think it is the cubs’ surrogate mother and even acts like one. It cuddles them, smothers them with hugs, plays with them and even bottle-feeds them!
