Bea and Wilma

Other than both having long necks, this pair are quite different from one another. Bea the Giraffe and Wilma the Ostrich live at Busch Gardens. Despite having 65-acres to roam freely, they'd rather spend most of their time together.

Lions and Tigers and Bears...Oh My!

As babies, this trio once belonged to an abusive drug dealer. They could have been separated when rescued, but had already formed a deep bond. Leo, Baloo, and Shere Khan now live together in Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary. Regardless of their difference, they found friendship!
