Five-month-old grizzly bear Bam Bam and 16-month-old chimpanzee Vali are the most unlikely friends. For while together they resemble a pair of cuddly toys, they would normally live on different continents. And when they grow up, Bam Bam is likely to be about nine times the size of his chimp pal. But the young males have been inseparable since being introduced at the Myrtle Beach Safari park in South Carolina, where they were born. In the wild, Bam Bam would live in the wilds of North America, while Vali’s natural home is the jungle of central Africa. Whether the two stay friends when they grow up will only be determined by time.
