Adorable Moment Baby Monkey Plays With His Tiger Cub Best Friend (Video)

This is the moment an adorable pair, that included a baby monkey and a tiger cub playing together was caught on video.

We have seen many inter-species friendships but this seems to be one of the rarest we have ever seen.

The four-month-old macaque is seen having a piggy back on a three-month-old tiger.

The pair share a strong bond after they were born around the same time and have been growing up together since the tigers mum rejected him.

The footage quickly went viral, and its not hard to see why:

‘They like to spend time together. We would let them play together sometimes.”

‘At first, the monkey was afraid of the tiger. But they quickly became familiar with each other and are now best friends,’ she added.

In the popular video, the baby monkey is wearing a diaper and can be seen piggybacking on the cub as they walked around the enclosure.
