Okay looked at pics again,that just makes me melt,those pictures are just to the sweet,so even though they are growing up together and bonding the tiget would eventually try to kill them??

I saw a short blurb on this on the morning news (can't open the link--dial up :frustrated: ). They didn't address the issue of what happens when they have to separate them because the tigers get too big... Orangutans can form some pretty deep attachments... Did they mention anything about the future in the article?

It said at about 3 months they will have to be seperated because tigers start eating meat then.

That's pretty sad. :sad: Poor orangutans will lose their buddies then...
