Lyin’ with Tigers and Bears, Oh My!

Two black bear cubs, abandoned by their mom, get a new home at China’s Qingdao Wildlife Park—and a new playmate: A tiger cub just their size.

Via Daily Picks and Flicks.



  1. They’re Sun Bears! Check the u-shaped light-furred markings on their anerable little chests!

    So cute I’m about to cry!!! ❤

  3. That’s it, I’m off to see The Wizard. Either I’ll get the Lyin’ with Tigers and Bears, or I’ll just have to have the Existential Blues.

  4. Madame X says:

    Steiff GmbH called. They are missing the prototypes for next year’s SQUEE! line…


  5. When I saw the pic of the bear being bottle-fed, I literally squealed “Oh! Oh!” and flailed my hands.

    I defy anyone not to!

  6. jjjjjjj says:

    Sad! Looks like a meeeserables place to live.

  7. oh little bear trying to smooch the camera, come here and I will smooch you!

  8. Is it just my PC or or their no sound for the first 15 seconds or so? I’m missing out on little bear grunts!

  9. Oh my god, I can’t believe something that cute is real…

  10. A valiant effort, but China will never unseat Japan as the world capital of cute.

  11. mrtsmom says:

    Pretty sure these little guys are the definition of cute! With their little tummies lolling out all over the place, and all the crawling/scooting/tumbling action with their uncoordinated little bodies and sort of smooshing into each other while chewing on each other’s ears with no concerns or upset. Too adorable!!!

  12. Malinki says:

    Nah, Japan has a whole bunch of really, really strange to get over before they can catch up in cute. Remember, this is the country that gave us tentacle porn, Godzilla, and used panty vending machines. A little bit of Hello Kitty doesn’t quite even the scales, y’know?

  13. Those two little bears are just….so…..adorable!!

  14. seriously i hope you’re joking :/

  15. The tiger cub seems awfully snuggly and a perfect companion for these sweeties.

  16. (The Original) Mel says:

    No. It’s all true. Used panty vending machines are real. Ugh.

  17. Tiger bebeh: *SIGH*

    When one cub is first being bottle fed, the way the other one is flop-crawling in the background is so perfect. Wobble-flop-crawl-roll-whatever! Where were we going? wobble-flop …

  18. Malinki says:

    And I didn’t even get to the really nasty stuff.

  19. Yes, but China has live crab vending machines. So they are force for weird in the world.

  20. victoreia says:


  21. I can’t decide if I want the the wee bears more or the baby tiger…
    Oh heck I’ll take them all !!!!

  22. chanpon says:

    I think I detected Princess Di eyes on that feeding bear.

  23. The whites of the eyes get me every time.

  24. Malinki says:

    I’ll see your live crab tanks and raise you cosplay.

  25. chanpon says:

    Pinchy, I love me some Japanese kawaii, but I offer two words: baby. pandas. ‘Nuff said.

  26. Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fuzziest carnivore of all??

  27. I can go to bed now and dream of snorgling live teddy bears – almost unbearably cute, the lot of them!

  28. eternalcanadian says:

    Agreed. Makes me wonder why the mum abandoned them. Zoos can be awful places, especially in China! 😦

  29. It´s just so sweet how baby animals from difference species can get on with each other, no matter how different they are. 🙂

    Us adult humans should take that as an example!

  30. Andi in NC says:

    I love how his leetle hiney is up in the air…

  31. Good start for the cast of a live action version of The Jungle Book!

  32. Winnie the Pooh x 2 and Tigger, the early years.

  33. michelle says:

    ARGH SO CUTE. I can’t stand it.

  34. used panties?! :O

  35. touché!

  36. Yeah, I was thinking, I didn’t know Black Bears lived in China…

  37. Snurfles says:

    Keep in mind that in Japan, adult-related items, manga, etc. are separate from those for the younger set. Not that there are walls between them or anything because it’s not needed. Adults stick to their porn and panties (eyuw) and the younger crowd reads their Fruits Basket or whatever action comic has the young males’ attention that month. The culture is SO different over there. Adult’s and children’s entertainment really are just naturally separate. The U.S. has plenty of graphic porn too, but we also have our moments of the Qte so don’t judge an entire country by a small portion of their entertainment.

  38. Snurfles says:

    Cosplay is a hoot! Weird yes, but it certainly doesn’t diminish any cuteness.

  39. i just want to know how you got through moderation! snurfles is crafty.

  40. If this doesn’t make you smile, nothing will. Too ridiculously cute and adorable.
