Lions and tigers were hardly ever seen performing such as the better of family, but there are two cubs in a Japanese safari park that are damaging the mould.

The African Safari park inside the Oita prefecture in Japan has a lion cub and a tiger cub that appear to be inseparable.

Posting photographs for the pair to their twitter feed, the African Safari park has been recording the 2 cubs’ relationship, revealing them playing together or sleeping side by side.
