Hippo and Tortise: BFFs
After a tsunami, survivor and 650 pound baby hippo Owen imprinted on 130-year-old tortoise Mzee. At Haller Park wildlife sanctuary in Mombasa, Kenya, Owen started following Mzee everywhere. The two became inseparable BFFs. As one-year-old Owen grew, the two lived, slept and played together. In a picture of perfect interspecies cooperation, they even created their own language. Using both noises and gentle prodding, they nudge each other and nod.
