How did you meet your best friend?

These two tiger cubs have an incredible story behind their growing friendship.

A baby Bengal tiger was taken into custody at the border after a teen attempted to smuggle him into the United States.

Eventually, he was brought to the San Diego Zoo in California. Little did he know that another wild feline was going to make his day.

A Sumatran tiger cub was also brought to the zoo. This baby had been abandoned by his mother and needed companionship. Luckily, the Bengal tiger was there to connect with him, which would soon benefit both cats.

Once the tiger cubs met and got to know each other, they clicked instantly. Have you ever seen a friendship this strong?

In the video below, posted on September 12, 2017, the tiny tiger cubs are having the time of their lives together. They play around and tackle each other, play fighting in their room. The scene is just so adorable, you have to see it for yourself!

Hopefully, these two tiger cubs will be able to grow together and lean on each other through thick and thin.

Check out these adorable tiger cubs playing with each other in the video below, and please SHARE if you think these cubs will be lifelong friends!
