A couple of the most popular posts of all time, here at Primatology.net, have been the cute-overload-esque ones, such as the baby macaque and white pigeon friendship and the orangutan and Sumatran tiger bond. Similar to the latter story, a new one has emerged of a chimpanzee named Anjana ‘adopting’ two white tiger cubs named Mitra and Shiva, over at The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (TIGERS) in South Carolina.
The story behind the adoption revolves around Anjana’s caregiver, China York, and the bond they share. China raised Anjana and Anjana has mimicked her human caregiver in caring for other animals at the institute, such as the new born white tiger cubs. The Daily Mail has more details, so jump on over there once you had your fill on the images.
