Dog And Leopard Best Friends
You don’t often see a leopard cuddled up to a dog, but on a farm in South Africa it’s become a common sight.
Salati, a 10-month-old leopard, has become best friends with golden retriever Tommy and the pair are almost inseparable, the Daily Mail reports.The odd pair were hand raised together at the Glen Afric Country Lodge near Pretoria. .Animal handler Richard Brooker said Salati and Tommy loved nothing more than to run amok during their daily exercise session before settling down for a cuddle.
“Whereever you see one the other is right behind,” the Daily Mail quoted Mr Brooker as saying. .They are inseparable and both have lots of energy so they get the exercise they both need together.” .When Salati was first introduced to Tommy she was a tiny orphaned cub.But the tables have since turned with the leopard growing to weigh 18kg, more than double Tommy’s weight at 8.2kg.
