Your "AWWWW" for the day

When hurricane Hannah separated two white tigers from their mother, Anjana came to the Rescue. Anjana, a chimp at TIGERS in South Carolina, became surrogate mom and playmate to the cubs, even helping with bottle feeding, according to The Sun.

But here's the truly amazing part: This is something Anjana does all the time, having helped raised leopard and lion cubs on several occasions.

Truly remarkable. Especially that second photo. With an alleged 99.5 % DNA match between Humans and Chimps, I suppose I shouldn't be surprised .
