Best friends chimpanzee Varli and lynx Sutra. 20-month-old chimpanzee Varli and nine-week-old lynx Sutra live at at Myrtle Beach Safari in South Carolina. The friends are inseparable spending their days chasing each other around the wildlife park, having a cuddle and even sleep side-by-side. Director of the park, Dr Bhangavan Antel, told The Sun: ‘It’s a natural friendship. Varli gives Sutra the ability to have so much more adventure. He lives with him around the clock.’ In an unlikely match, a baby chimp and a lynx cub have become the best of friends.

A lynx is a medium-sized wildcat with a short tail and tufts of black hair on the tips of its ears. The smallest of the species are the bobcat and Canada lynx while the largest is the Eurasian lynx. It is not the first time friendly Varli has made an unlikely pal. Earlier this year he was pictured having a great time with a five-month grizzly bear called Bam Bam in the same wildlife park.
