The Tale ofOwen and Mzee

These photographs tell the story of the
baby hippo (Owen), who was saved from the 2004 tsunami.  In order to
survive, he was adopted by a giant
tortoise (Mzee).  These pictures were taken at an animal facility in the port city of Mombasa , Kenya, East Africa.

This is a true story that shows that our differences don't matter much
when we need the comfort of another. Share Owen and Mzee's story with a friend.  A-less-than-a-year-old hippo has adopted a male tortoise.  After it was swept away and lost its mother, the hippo was traumatized.  Mzee seems to be very happy being a 'mother'.  The hippo is a young baby, he
was left at a very tender age.

we take, but by the moments that take our breath away'
