Every now and then we need a story to brighten up our lives. I do not remember where I heard about this first but I am truly fascinated by this story of a Hippo called Owen that cohabits with a tortoise called Mzee (the wise one). Apparently the Hippo was rescued in Kenya and was placed in a park where he adopted Mzee, a male tortoise, as his adoptive mother. Read the web log here to discover the fascinating symbiosis that has developed.
All together now.... aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.
