A video of a tiny monkey and a cute tiger cub has gone viral because it is so cute. Both live in a zoo in China, and they have a special friendship. The staff at the zoo caught them playing together on camera because it was so sweet. The short video was shot at the Hengshui Wildlife Park in the Hebei Province in northern China. It is very popular on Douyin, the Chinese version of TikTok. In it, Ban Jin, a 4-month-old macaque, can’t get enough of September, a 3-month-old baby tiger who is his best friend. Since they were born about a month apart, the two unlikely friends are always looking for new things to do.
The caretakers are so fond of them that they spoil them and let them play more than usual. In the cute video from November of last year, the baby monkey rides on his friend’s back while still wearing a diaper. Even though they live in the same cage with other small monkeys, these two don’t seem to be able to be apart. “September [the tiger] scared Ban Jin a lot at first,” Ms. Dai, the park manager, told MailOnline. “But they got to know each other quickly and are now best friends. Now that they like spending time together, we sometimes let them play together.” Look at how cute these two are together!
