Look at the lion cub! Look at the puppy! Puppy love! Hello Kitty!
From the San Diego Union Tribune: Cairo, an Italian mastiff puppy, was introduced as a playmate to 10-week-old Koza, a lion cub whose twin died, at the San Diego Wild Animal Park. The idea is that lions are social animals, but there are no other lion cubs at the park for Koza to interact with. Cairo is the next best thing.
Koza is the cub of a wild lion, so her genetic material is very valuable and it’s important she thrive despite her challenges so far. Cairo was born in San Diego after his pregnant mother was rescued from Hurricane Katrina.
Just the sweetest Valentine ever, from me, to you. Thanks to for this one.
