Looking for some motivation to start your workday? Or perhaps just a little mid-day distraction? A video of two-year-old Do Do the Chimpanzee, feeding Aorn, a two-month-old tiger cub will probably do the trick.
Yes, this really does exist.
In this video, the furry babysitter rocks some cutt-off jean shorts and feeds a bottle of milk to the thirsty baby at the Samut Prakan Crocodile Farm and Zoo on the outskirts of Bankgok, Thailand. According to CBS News, Do Do has been feeding his tiger buddies every day for the past year, although soon, the tigers will grow too big for him to handle. Fortunately, this relationship appears to be based on the chimp's interest in the tigers, but we hope it's not orchestrated for human entertainment.
This isn't the first time that a chimp and tiger have hit it off. Three years ago, a chimp was photographed cradling a white tiger cub, acting as a surrogate mother for the cub and his twin brother.
Unfortunately, many tigers are threatened by deforestation, poaching, and human interference. Fortunately for Aorn, he seems to be well-cared for by Do Do.
