|Anjana the chimpanzee and tiger cub|
Here is a two-year-old chimpanzee, Anjana, who has been helping to raise 23-day-old cubs Mitra and Shiva at T.I.G.E.R.S. (The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species), South Carolina.
Anjana and the cubs have been inseparable ever since the cubs' birth 3 weeks ago.
The chimp took on the surrogate role after the cubs were separated from their mother.
T.I.G.E.R.S. founder Dr Bhagavan Antle said: "Anjana has acted as a surrogate mother to leopards, lions and orangutans and has done the same with these baby white tigers. She gives them a bottle and lies with them — she is a great assistant."
