Oh my!

It sounds like this trio of best buds is right out of a movie.

A lion named Leio, a tiger named Shere Khan and a brown bear named Baloo have become great friends at the Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary in Georgia, according to Today.

They were actually rescued when they were very young from the basement of a drug dealer and have been besties for nearly 13 years, sharing a cage at the sanctuary.

It’s an unusual friendship that would never happen in the wild. The bear is native to North America, the lion to Africa and the tiger to Asia, according to Today.

The trio is jokingly known as “BLT” at the sanctuary — and workers say humans can stand to learn a lot from the animals and their unconditional love for each other.

To learn more about BLT, watch the video player above.
