Hippo's New Mommy
Owen, a baby hippo, was rescued in Kenya after being separated from his herd during the tsunami. Rescuers released him into an animal sanctuary where he went up to Mzee, a 130 year old male tortoise. Mzee initially rebuffed the hippo, but they've since become inseparable companions. Aw shucks.
