ABSTRACT
The article reveals that a 3-year-old chimpanzee named Anjana likes to take care of young animals of a different species. At Jungle Island, a zoo in Florida, she often helps workers care for animals such as baby lions and cougars. She is now helping to raise two white tiger cubs. The chimpanzee likes the cub to suck on her finger just like a pacifier and even helps feed them with a bottle.
