Devoted lions Tanya and Tarzan endured seven years of hell in a circus in Guatemala, confined to a small barren cage the size of a queen-size bed. Rescued by Animal Defenders International, the doting couple remain inseparable in their forever home at the ADI Wildlife Sanctuary (ADIWS), South Africa.

Resident sweethearts at ADIWS had a long journey to peace and happiness. During their time in the circus, Tarzan suffered horrific injuries when he was attacked by a tiger, his lower lip torn and hanging from his chin. His tiny protector Tanya still bears the scars on her face, ears and back as she tried to protect him.
To repair the damage and make him more comfortable, Tarzan was given a partial lip-lift after he arrived at ADIWS which has healed well, and Tanya seems to approve.
Jan Creamer, ADI President said: “The inspiring, heart-warming story of Tanya and Tarzan shows the incredible bond these lifelong companions share. A bond which helped get them through the darkest of times. Together, they can now enjoy the happiest chapter of their lives.”
