Some wild animals have the strangest yet sweetest bonds you’ll ever see. Even creatures from completely different species have the ability to become best friends.
Baloo was a 12-year-old American black bear living in a peaceful animal park — and he had a couple of unexpected friends to keep him company.
In the video below, posted on December 17, 2016, Baloo walks over to his buddy, Shere Khan the Bengal tiger. The two predators give each other a cuddle to say hello, which is something you just don’t normally see.
Although black bears and tigers come across each other in some regions of the world, they usually don’t get along like these two. That’s what makes their bond so special.
In addition, they have a lion best friend named Leo. The three of them have a shared past and now, they are so close that they can be called brothers.
As babies, the trio was kept in someone’s basement under horrible conditions. They were rescued and brought to Noah’s Ark Sanctuary in Locust Grove, Georgia. Now, these brothers can’t stand to be apart.
On August 11, 2016, Baloo and Shere Khan said goodbye to their brother, Leo, when he passed away — but he will always remain in their hearts.
Finally, please check out their fascinating relationship in the video below, and SHARE if you think these brothers will always remain close!
