Lions and tigers and bears (oh my!) are not known for being the closest of friends, but the trio known as the BLT is the exception to that rule, being the only bear, lion, and tiger in the world who live in the same enclosure.

Baloo the American Black Bear, Leo the African Lion, and Shere Khan the Bengal Tiger have formed an inseparable bond since they were cubs. The three animals were found malnourished, frightened, and infected with parasites in the basement of a drug dealer’s home in 2001. Now healthy and happy, the three play, eat, and sleep together in the same enclosure at Noah’s Ark, a non-profit animal sanctuary in Georgia.
