post-industrial love revolution!
Destined to cuteness? This pair of orphaned Sumatran tigers and Orangutans joined forces when their respective mothers abandoned them at birth. Tigers, unfortunately, begin eating meat at 3 months as their natural urge to devour engages; the quad will have to split ways before long.
Orangutans have been isolated to two last outposts. Borneo -- which hosts 7,000 Orangutans, a population twice the size of Shelby, Montana -- and Sumatra, accomodating a population roughly equivalent to fair Niagara Falls, NY.
But, hey, the Sumatran tiger stands strong with 500 guerilla warriors. Twice as thriving as the Coquille Indian Reservation!
According to the Wonderful World feature section of MSNBC this would be unthinkable in nature. So really, isn't it kind of worth it?
