It is general knowledge that lions frequently don’t form friends with other animals. However, life is full of things that are beyond what people can comprehend. This makes life so intriguing to folks who know to appreciate it. This time, a lion shaking hands with his doggo companion will surprise many of us!
The adorable video documenting the time when the lion shakes and licks the dog’s hand has warmed millions of hearts. Since it was posted on Youtube in January 2018, it has been seen more than 60M times and got 1.2M likes. In 23 seconds, the white lion, called Miki, stepped toward puppy Camila, who was wagging her tail. Then, he snatched up the canine’s right paw, and with a delicate gesture, kissed it. Maybe he was requesting forgiveness from his best buddy!
Miki and Camila were both in the care of the Black Jaguar-White Tiger Foundation (BJWT), a non-profit organization that preserves big cats and other animals in Mexico.
Rescued in 2016, Miki was maintained in the apartment as a regular pet, and raised along with Camila. Because the animals kept together since they were newborns, Miki and Camila formed a particular affinity. “[They] have been together throughout their lives, far before we rescued them, and if they’re not together, they get really nervous,” the employees at the shelter added.
While it is reasonable that animals bred in captivity might create friendships, the excellent relationship between two distinct creatures is nothing but the beauty of life
