A 9 week old lynx, a medium sized wildcat, named Sutra and a 20 month old chimpanzee, Varil, share a very special friendship at Myrtle Beach Safari in South Carolina.

They found each other at the safari one day, and the rest is history.

The two spend most of their days playing, chasing each other, cuddling and even nap side by side, totally inseparable. Varil is very protective of his wildcat pal, and Sutra doesn't mind being cuddled by Varli. The pair often cozy up together in their wildlife park.

"Varli gives Sutra the ability to have so much more adventure. He lives with him around the clock," said Dr. Bhangavan Antel, director of the park. "It's a natural friendship."
