QUEENSLAND, Australia -

An unlikely pair has become best buds at the Darling Downs Zoo in Australia.

According to staff members at the zoo, Honey the dog and Kwanaza, a rare white lion, are inseparable.

Kwanza was being hand raised because his mother stopped producing milk.

The 4-month-old lion is white as a result of a recessive gene, posted Darling Downs Zoo, and no white lions have been seen in the wild since 1994. 

The two animals "developed a special bond" and spend time exploring, wrestling and playing together.
