This warthog and mongoose look like they have no worries as they’ve become best friends just like a real-life Timon and Pumbaa. Miss Piggy the warthog and Mongo the mongoose have an uncanny resemblance to the famous friends from the iconic Lion King films. Just like their big screen doubles Miss Piggy and Mongo love to play together and Mongo even rides on his friend’s back, just like in the movies. Fans might notice Mongo is a mongoose and not a meerkat like the character Timon, but both species are closely related. And both Miss Piggy, aged eight, and six-year-old Mongo have found happiness after a rough start in life. Miss Piggy was rescued as a baby after being hit by a car and Mongo is an orphan. But now they have found happiness together at CARACAL – the Centre for Conservation of African Resources: Animals, Communities and Land use – in Chobe, Botswana. Because they have been rescued, they cannot be safely returned to the wild so the pair act as wildlife ambassadors helping to educate local communities.
