        Unlikely Friends

        This video segment from Nature: Animal Odd Couples showcases the relationship between Kasi, a cheetah, and Mtani, a dog. Kasi and Mtani live at Busch Gardens – both were "orphaned" when they were young and the keepers at Busch Gardens developed a pilot project to observe the relationship between them. The two animal species have many similarities which have facilitated the growth of their friendship, but Assistant Curator Tim Smith believes Kasi and Mtani have also developed a truly unique bond, including their own means of communication.
