Tiger cubs from different moms become family

Posted: Updated:

Brothers from different mothers are bonding as roommates, part of a real-life reality show.

A three-month-old rescued Bengal tiger cub and a four-month-old Sumatran cub are bunk buddies at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
The Bengal cub was confiscated during a vehicle check at the border, arriving at the safari park in August.
He'll eventually have about 200 pounds on his Sumatran brother, who came from the Smithsonian's National Zoo in Washington, DC when his mom wasn't able to care for him.

Zookeepers said the two act like brothers, playing, cuddling, even squabbling like siblings.
