Anjana the chimp became surrogate mother to these two white tiger cubs, Mitra and Shiva. Twins are a handful for anyone, but this two-year-old chimpanzee has previously stepped in as a surrogate mother to other babies like lions, leopards and orangutans. The tiger mother became aggressive after a hurricane, so infant animal caretaker China and Anjana took over their care. Anjana and Mitra and Shiva formed this bond at TIGERS (The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species) in South Carolina. The chimp gave these cubs love and playtime as well as bottle fed them.
