  • 1. A lion who was rejected by its mother has stuck up a friendship with a meerkat.Bob the meerkat and Zinzi the lion have been inseparable since Zinzi was rescued by zoo and safari ranch owner Marcell Tournier, 33. The friendship echoes thepartnership between Simba, the lion cub hero of Disney classic The Lion King and Timon, his Meerkat friend.
  • 2. "Bob seems to have a "Hakuna Matata" problem-free philosophy", says Mr Tournier, "and taught Zinzi how to relax“…
  • 3. Zinzi was brought in at just one day old when Marcell realised her mother wasrefusing to feed her… a harsh reality of nature that could have meant the end of adorable Zinzi…
  • 4. But almost as soon as the lion had moved in to the home, near Sun City, South Africa, Mr Tournier quickly realised he wasnt Zinzis only fan…
  • 5. The lively two-year-old Meerkat instantly took a shine to his new playmate…
  • 6. Amazingly Bob began following his much bigger friend day and night and would even snuggle in at nap time…
  • 7. Bob likes having anything cute and cuddly around," said Mr Tournier. "If itll liedown and cuddle him he will love it.

The pair live on the sprawling PredatorWorld Zoo and Game Farm, which covers 1,000 hectares in the countrys north- west.
