(CNN) -  Did your parents ever tell you to stop playing with your food?  A lesson that luckily, was not learned by a tiger in Russia.

Amur the tiger and Timur the goat now live in the same cage at  the Russian Safari Park.

Amur usually dines on goats, but Timur was decidedly braver than his predecessors.

Apparently the goats' bravery earned him respect from the tiger and the two animals now sleep and play together.
