Wanna Be Pals?

Ruuxa the cheetah cub was rejected by his mum 😦 so the guys at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park paired him with Raina, a Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy. The puppeh will be raised alongside the cheetah and serve as his lifelong BFF!

  8. Maybe Ruuxa’s mom couldn’t handle the cute, because my head was asplodin’ looking at the little cheetah face. The cub nomming on the puppeh’s ear was my favorite scene!
