Feb. 14 (UPI) -- Zookeepers in the Philippines captured video of a young orangutan bottle-feeding a baby tiger after the two animals were introduced.

The video, posted to YouTube by John Mills, shows the orangutan using a bottle to feed milk to the baby lion at the Davao Crocodile Park.

Zookeepers said they introduced the two animals in the hopes of forming a bond.

The experiment was successful and the orangutan showed nurturing behavior toward the cub, including bottle feeding.
