They say a dog is a man’s best friend, but this pair might beg to differ.
Zion the lion has an unusually strong bond with his 69-year-old caretaker, Frikkie Von Solns, who has looked after him since birth. Without his mother to nurture him as a cub, Zion looked to Frikkie for the feeding and social interaction he needed. The pair even shared the same bed.
Eleven years later, the bond between the surrogate father and son is stronger than ever. See the their amazing interactions.
