An Indonesian man Abdullah Sholeh, 31, has formed an unbreakable bond with four-year-old, 27-stone tiger.
He regularly sleeps, plays and fights with the enormous tiger.
The pair has spent every day together since Mr Sholeh helped raise her from a three-month-old cub in Malang, Indonesia. He now cares for her full-time for owner Noer Mohammaed Sholeh and has become affectionately known as the tiger nanny.
The pair are so inseparable, that Mr Sholeh often shuns his own bed to sleep alongside the big cat in a rickety outhouse.
The tiger Bengal Mulan is even known to 'mock attack', hug and kiss her companion when they play in the garden behind their home.
However, despite the play-fighting Mr Sholeh still suffers from time to time minor injuries as a result of Mulan's strength.
