Animals At The Tbilisi Zoo Form Unlikely Friendships

Posted: Updated:

Tbilisi, Georgia -Animals at the Tbilisi Zoo in Tbilisi, Georgia, are forming unlikely friendships.

A rhino is living with donkeys, a lion cub is playing with a puppy. And those are just a few of the regular scenes you can expect at the zoo.

It all started when a 6-year-old rhino named Manuela killed her spouse in a fight. After she appeared depressed and aggressive, zoo management found the perfect companions to make her feel at ease, which turned out to be a herd of donkeys.

Zoo officials say the rhino even protects the youngest donkey when somebody enters their living space.

Also, sharing the same living space is a puppy and a lion cub named Shamba.

The two were raised together after the white lion was separated from his mother.
