Little dog adopts BIG cat

Bogi and Zimba

Kids often outgrow their parents, but Zimba is one baby that will definitely be much bigger than his foster dad.

That's because he's a lion cub, and Bogi, his foster dad, is a dog!

Three-month-old Zimba was given to Gyoengyoes Zoo in Hungary by a donor from Italy, and ever since then Bogi has been taking care of the cub.

Normally cats and dogs don't get on too well, but this pair of unlikely chums are getting on so well they're now the zoo's "mane" attraction!
