Lion, tiger and bear are BFFs
Lions, tigers and bears aren't usually friends, but these wild animals are inseparable.
They were rescued during a drug raid from the basement of a home in Atlanta back in 2001.
The animals were handed over to "Noah's Ark," a nonprofit animal sanctuary.
The malnourished cubs were nursed back to health and separated.
However, once separated all three animals became lethargic, sad and couldn't eat.
So, they put them back in the same together.
They now live in a 2.5-acre enclosure where they sleep, eat and even cuddle together.
The bear, Baloo, weighs 800 lbs. and is the leader of the pack.
Leo is an African lion and weighs 450 lbs.
The tiger, Shere Khan is the smallest in the group, weighing around 300 lbs.
The animals, all male, will each celebrate their 13th birthday on June 21 with a party at "Noah's Ark."
This is the only known case in the world of three distinct large predators that live in close proximity to each other.
