Orangutan bottle feeds tiger cubs (seriously cute video)


We're not sure we've ever seen anything quite THIS cute... An orangutan decided to take on the role of 'surrogate mum' to three tiger cubs - and even bottle feeds them in an ahh-inducing video.

The footage was taken at Myrtle Beach in South Carolina, and shows the orangutan, which is actually a male, lovingly playing with the cubs, who he reportedly interacts with every day.



And YouTube users loved it too, with one writing: "33 seconds is not NEARLY enough. We demand a live stream!"

Another said: "Usually, I don't like things like this. But this put a smile on my face:]."

One person simply wrote: "Cuteness overload!", and somebody else joked: "`my cute metre is broken."

We have to agree whole-heartedly.
