Lion cub & mastiff pup buddy up

saw this story on our local news station the other night - was soooo cute...there's video at the link.


NBC News

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - A lion cub and a puppy have become the best of friends at the San Diego Zoo.

Koza, an African lion cub, and Cairo, an Italian mastiff, spent the day pouncing on each other and playing with toys.

Koza was born in November and had to be hand raised by his keepers.

Because lions are social animals, they brought Cairo in to be his companion.
After the two bond, they will be moved to lion camp, where they will have a field to play on.

Koza and Cairo will stay together until the lion cub is big enough to be introduced into a lion pride at the zoo.
