(CNN) -- They're an unlikely combination: a pig, a tiger and two puppies.
But they get along just fine as roommates.
The animals are together as part of an experiment to see how predators react to their traditional prey from an early age.
The animals are just babies: the tiger is two months old and the puppies and piglet are a month older.

They've been together now for a month without any problems -- except for the piglet, who has been by far the most aggressive of the lot.
As for the tiger kitten, he is still sweet and curious.
It remains to be seen whether the tiger will suddenly realize its predator instincts -- and bring home the bacon.
