In their natural habitat, a lion, a tiger and a bear would not coexist in the same place in the wild, but these three haven't left each other's side for 15 years.

Leo the African lion, Shere Khan the Bengal Tiger and Baloo the American Black Bear were saved from a rough past, but now are living in harmony at Noah's Ark animal Sanctuary (NAAS) in Locust Grove, Georgia.

They were taken away from the basement of a house during a drug raid in Atlanta 15 years ago. They always had each other during those tough times, and they grew up together. The three unlikely friends are completely inseparable.

When they arrived at Noah's Ark animal Sanctuary...

Due to their injuries, they were not able to be rehabilitated back into the wild, so NAAS gave them a forever home at the sanctuary.

The trio do everything together and care for each other like brothers. They show each other affection and love each and every day.

Their lives began in an unthinkable way, but their bond kept them through those horrific early days. Now they can spend their retirement together at a comfortable home with good food and great care.
