An adorable 32-day-old lion club learned that the hard way on Friday while enjoying playtime with a mini-marsupial at China’s Guaipo Manchurian Tiger Park. Though the monkey, only 16-days-old, might be much smaller in stature than his big cat companion, that hasn’t stopped the two from becoming fast friends.
