Who says sumatran tigers and orangutans can't get along?!

This picture gained international exposure in February of 2007. It was taken at the Taman Safari Indonesia Animal Hospital. Both animals were abandoned by their mothers but they are no worse for wear according to the public relations officer at the Taman Safari Indonesia Animal Hospital. The Sumatran Tiger is named Dema and the Orangutan is Irma.

According to Mr. Humas at the hospital, both animals are doing fine. Due to the fact that both animals started to exhibit their natural behaviors, the animals were separated and Dema now lives in the large natural habitat at the hospital.

The Sumatran Tiger is endangered and according to a previous post we wrote, there are only 350 to 500 of them left. You can read more about other endangered cats here.
