    Default The three-month-old tiger given a 'friendly' bite by his German Shepherd 'brother'

    When he reaches his full size this three-month-old tiger will be a force of nature to reckon with.
    But for now tiger cub Kinwah is prepared to accept a rather nasty nip from his German shepherd Rumble who has taken on the role of protective older brother.
    The young cat spends his times cuddling up next to the older dog who has taken the him under his wing at a zoo in Australia.
    Kinwah was born at Mogo Zoo in New South Wales, Australia, and has been hand-reared by zoo owner zoo keeper Sally Padey since he was two weeks old.

    The decision to hand-rear Kinwah was made after it was established that he had a problem with his hip joint.
    According to Sally, raising mischievous Kinwah is like having a child - and one that is currently experiencing the 'terrible twos'.
    Sally, who lives at the zoo among the 200 animals, keeps Kinwah in her own backyard and her German Shepherd dogs.

    Animals are so fascinating... it's amazing that when they're young they don't have well-developed predatory instincts or aren't socialized to hunt yet.. so cute.

    I wonder when the tiger is twice his size, he will still look up to the dog, or will the tables be turned. Interesting (and still adorable)!
