Unlikely Friendship: Lion and Calf [VIDEO]

Is this lion just playing with its food?

Lions are fierce predators, but they apparently have a softer side too. They are supposed to eat calves, but this lion made one as its friend instead.

It is obvious they enjoy each other’s company.


It kind of looks like this lion is just teasing the calf, as it would be an easy takedown and a tasty snack for the big cat. It really goes to show you that the bond of friendship can be tight no matter where you are on the food chain.

The little calf has some moxie as it tries to play rough by headbutting his BFF.

It is so cool to watch the lion protect the calf from another lion on the hunt. I wonder what makes this calf so special.
