There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

This thread is for incidents and interactions where wild animals surprise people with different kind of co-operation/adoptions etc. No captive animals here or interactions between captive animals which have been raised together, only incidents from wild without people involved to development of situations.

I am not sure if this has been already posted here. Still this is a rare and very interesting incident because it looks like it, that this leopard cub died because of illness, not by other lions etc.

Quote" In news that will make your midweek blues worse, a leopard cub who was being reared by a lioness in Gujarat's Gir forest area has died. The leopard cub, named Mowgli, was under the care of a 7-year-old lioness, named Raksha, for the past 45 days." "Cub died due to congenital femoral hernia"

Another, a bit older but still a very interesting incident. Again lion acts in a very surprising way.

This tiger and how it took care of cubs has been mentioned before. Still this video is interesting to watch and what makes this male tiger and incident so special is, that it didn´t just look after for a moment these cubs. It raised them from tiny cubs to adult tigers, fed and protected them all that time. Old "story" but really interesting. Hopefully something new here for some people to find out.
