An unusual friendship has formed between a playful otter and a mischievous LION. Petite Annel Snyman has raised a lion and otter in her house – and now they are best friends. 34-year-old Annel runs Loebies Guesthouse and Predator Park in the Limpopo Province of South Africa – home to everything from lions and leopards to hyenas and meerkats. And in addition to her amazing interactions with the colossal animals, a fascinating friendship has developed on site between her pet lion Kumari and pet otter Moses.
Kumari was born earlier this year from an adult lioness and Annel is keeping a close eye on the first-born lioness. She used to live in a nursery in Annel’s house, but now that she’s bigger, she gets to roam outside and play.
The two furry friends follow each other around and seem to really enjoy causing mischief. Annel expects Kumari to keep playing with Moses even after she’s way bigger.
