FIVE of nature’s most fearful animals have formed a bond – after the baby animals were abandoned by their mums. The baby animals – three lions cubs, a tiger cub, and a spotted hyena cub are having a roaring good time at the Akwaaba Lodge in Rustenburg, South Africa, where all the baby animals live under one roof.
The owner of the four- star hotel, Layla Cajee, has raised the lion cubs, tiger cub and hyena cub from birth. Bella the baby tiger, five months, is the leader of the pack, while the three baby lions, Delano, Romeo and Maximus, also five months, prefer a paws and a nap. Meanwhile the eldest baby animal – Milika the hyena, six months – is the most mischievous in the motley crew of animal babies. The animals share the same living enclosures and even share meal times together. But these cute cuddly animals will transform into predators in two year’s time – so the baby tiger cub, the baby lion cubs and the baby hyena cub will be split up and live in separate enclosures.
