This is a somewhat unusual family constellation: baby lions, a baby tiger, and a baby hyena all live together as one happy family. Let’s get to know these oddballs!

Bella the Tiger

At just five months old, Bella the baby tiger has assumed the role of leader in this unusual gang of fur babies.

Despite her young age, her confidence and assertiveness mark her as a natural leader. This seems logical though, seeing as tigers are the biggest species out of all of them.

The Three Baby Lions Delano, Romeo, and Maximus

Delano, Romeo, and Maximus are the three lions of the group and are also five months old. These guys are the more laid-back members of this unique family. Although they love a good play session, their absolute favorite thing to do is lounging around or taking a nice long nap.

Milika the Hyena

Milika, the six-month-old spotted hyena cub, is known as the naughtiest sibling.

Her absolute favorite thing to do is play, and she is always up to something mischievous. This is right in line with the general behavior of her species, as striped hyenas are naturally playful and curious.

An Unconventional Group with One Thing in Common

What all these furry and adorable babies have in common is that they were also sadly abandoned or rejected by their mothers. But now they’ve formed an unconventional but happy family at the Akwaaba Lodge in Rustenburg, South Africa.

Will They Live Together Forever?

As sad as it sounds, these five besties sadly won’t spend their whole lives together. Once they mature and their instincts kick in, they may become dangerous for one another and they will have to be separated.
