Anjana Chimp - The Monkey Who Mothered a Puma Cub (Photos)

Anjana Chimp is a chimpanzee who unrequitedly acted as the surrogate mother of a puma cub in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Look how cute they are in the picture! The baby puma's name is Sierra, who's only 9 weeks old and definitely needs motherly love and care. Workers at the Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species Preserve are greatly fascinated at how Anjana the Chimp would feed Sierra milk through a milk bottle and clutch her while taking a walk.

This is not the first time that the 5 year old Anjana acted this way with an orphaned cat. Last year, Anjana Chimp has helped raised two tiger cubs named Mitra and Shiva. Here's the full story of Anjana Chimp in Mirror UK, where I got the photo of Anjana Chimp and Sierra. There's even a video of Anjana Chimp watching herself on The Ellen Degeneres Show below:
