Watch: A Lion, Tiger, & Bear Are Best Friends

Dwight Schrute once beautifully summed up the politics of the animal kingdom. "In the wild, there is no health care. In the wild, health care is, 'Ow, I hurt my leg; I can't run; a lion eats me, and I'm dead.' Well, I'm not dead. I'm the lion. You're dead," he helpfully explained.

Healthcare has nothing to do with the video below, but it's an excellent way to introduce you to this trio of a lion, tiger, and bear who are best friends. They live on Noah's Ark, a non-profit, 250-acre animal sanctuary in Georgia. Sanctuary employees say the three can often be seen nuzzling and playing with one another.

They each have their own names, but none of them is as important as their group name — BLT. It's like a sandwich, except the bread is a bear and a tiger. We like to imagine they're the three best friends that anybody could have, and they'll never, ever, ever leave each other. (Gawker)
