Chimpanzee and Tiger Cub

Come on, you don't seriously believe this rubbish. Really? I can fully understand it getting space in some of the newspapers like the Daily Mail but the BBC giving it air time, now that is daft.

Do a Google search for "Chimp and Tiger cub" and see what you turn up. It is old hat, old news, publicity seeking rubbish.

Here is the latest. This place. the Samutprakarn Crocodile Farm and Zoo of course has a connection with Mr Antle from the Myrtle Beach Circus. Perhaps he gave them the idea.

Adorable odd couple: Chimp's maternal instincts awakened as she feeds milk to a baby tiger

They are humans' closest relative, sharing a similar genetic make-up and displaying behaviour not unlike our own.

Now this little chimpanzee is showing off a motherly instinct to rival even the most maternal of mankind.
These adorable images reveal the close bond that has formed between a two-year-old chimpanzee called Do Do and a two-month-old tiger cub called Aorn.
Completely at ease in each other's company, the ape's motherly instincts take over as she attentively bottle feeds the baby tiger.
Aorn gratefully laps up the milk as Do Do tenderly holds the tiger in her arms.
At one point, Do Do puts the bottle in her own mouth - almost mimicking the actions of a human mother checking to see if the milk is suitable for her offspring to consume.
For some unexplained reason Do Do is wearing a pair of denim shorts - perhaps to protect her thighs from Aorn's claws.
They were photographed at Samut Prakan Crocodile Farm and Zoo on the outskirts of Bangkok, MORE HERE

Why is the Tiger cub not being reared by its mother?

Why is the Baby Chimpanzee not with its mother?

Where did the baby chimpanzee come from?

  1. Very good money-making business of a breeder/slaughterhouse of crocodiles annex "zoo"! Where the cubs are going after getting adult nowbody knows (yet) because once the louzy local "zoo"-cages will be full. No further comment, but the local laws are very weak and not much enforced due to certain circumstances!
    Here an impression of the "farm/zoo" in 26 photos:
