Maternal Chimpanzee Feeds Baby Tiger

It’s not every day that we get to see images as heart-warming yet bizarre as this. Over the weekend, two-year-old chimpanzee “Do Do” was seen feeding milk to “Aorn,” a 60-day-old baby tiger cub, at Thailand’s Samut Prakan Crocodile Farm and Zoo.

Completely at ease with each other, the chimp’s motherly instincts took over as she attentively bottle fed the baby tiger. Aorn gratefully lapped up the milk as Do Do tenderly held the tiger in her arms, as if they were literally mother and child.

Located on the outskirts of Bangkok, the crocodile farm is the largest in Thailand, housing an astounding 80,000 crocodiles. Other animals also live at the tourist attraction, including monkeys, tigers, elephants, lions, horses and hippopotamuses.
