Check out Shere Khan the tiger, Leo the lion and Baloo the bear chillin’ like villains at the Noah’s Ark Zoo in Locust Grove, Georgia.
The adorable but deadly trio are the unlikeliest friends you could ever see.
Living like brothers at the at a local zoo in Georgia, the bear, lion and tiger have grown up together all their lives.
Found on July 27, 2001, after police confiscated them as part of a drug bust, the three friends were just two months old.
They were locked in a car, along with an African spurred tortoise — Barney, who also lives at Noah’s Ark.
Prior to being moved to their current habitat, they lived near the Noah’s Ark Children’s Care Home, which meant they were not accessible to the general public.
Now they are in display in a specially constructed habitat and they enjoy a special bond with the Hedgecoth family who own Noah’s Ark.
