Two tiger cubs from different families, will grow up together as brothers.

An endangered Sumatarn tiger cub from the National Zoo in Wahsinton, D.C. was rejected by his mother after just 19 days and a Bengal tiger cub rescued during an alleged smuggling attempt at the Mexico border are now together.

The two became instant friends when they met at the San Diego Safari Park.

Both zoo's hope the two cubs will play, wrestle and learn how to be tigers together.
