Photos Of Dog And Cheetah Besties At Cincinnati Zoo Are Seriously Too Cute

Cutest best friends ever? We think so! Kris, the cheetah cub, was born July 9th and sadly lost her two siblings due to their mom Neena not being able to produce enough milk to sustain the cubs. 

In fear that Neena might abandon her last cub, caretakers at the Cincinnati Zoo stepped in and brought in a professional leader -- a dog! Blakely, the dog, came into the picture to "serve as a role model" the staff told PEOPLE

However, Blakely was retired and came out of retirement for the sole purpose of raising this cheetah cub. As it turns out though, Blakely was more than ready to get back to that retirement life just after a few months. 

Thus, a new canine stepped up to the plate! Remus, a mixed-breed rescue, is now Kris's newest (and from the looks of it, "best-est") friend! 

Seriously, it doesn't get any cuter than Remus and Kris! The two were photographed sharing toys and playing hide-n-seek!

Read more about the dog and cheetah pairings Cincinnati Zoo has paired over the years!

Disney Used This Adorable Cub As a Model For Baby Simba In The New 'Lion King" Remake

Anyone who watched the new remake of "The Lion King" with Donald Glover and Beyonce, couldn't stand the cuteness of baby Simba. Now, the Dallas zoo announced on their facebook page that Bahati, a female lion at their zoo, was actually used as a model for it in the remake of the Disney classic. "When Bahati was just a month old, we provided Disney with video of her movements for their animation team to use for motion and behavior reference when designing Simba in The Lion King," the zoo shared on Facebook. Those who have seen the technically stunning and wildly successful remake might recognize the Dallas Zoo lion, Bahati, who isn't so little anymore. While most of the footage the zoo sent to Disney shows Bahati as a month-old cub, the formerly tiny lion is now a fully-grown, two-and-a-half-year-old lioness.

Thank you, Wildlife Aid! After they received a call about a young fox cub stuck in what they call a 'light well', which was a hole that was created to bring some light into a basement, the rescuer, Simon, managed to rescue the angry little fox. After the quick rescue, the fox quickly scampered back to its mother.
