Summary

Take a wild ride with the Myrtle Beach Safari and witness the heartwarming interspecies friendships created there.

Wild Family: Seven Stories of Extraordinary Animal Friendships reminds us that friendships aren’t just for humans. When the struggles of living in the wild are removed, all kinds of animals can become best buds. This collection of extraordinary stories and amazing photographs chronicles seven such interspecies friendships. Meet Pharos, a depressed black lab who finds his purpose in life when introduced to Apollo and Odin, two liger cubs who need someone to look up to. Follow chimpanzee Anjana as she helps raise two white tiger cubs born prematurely during a hurricane.

World-class photography complements these engaging stories, told by animal conservationist Bhagavan “Doc” Antle, founder of the Myrtle Beach Safari rare animal preserve. Each of these memorable stories reminds us that animals, like humans, are capable of empathy, compassion, and love.
