Owen the Hippo Adopts Tortoise as Mum

A hippo separated from his family has adopted a 120-year-old male tortoise as his mother. Owen the hippo sought refuge behind the tortoise just after Christmas, and weeks later they are inseparable. The details of Owen’s adventure are not entirely clear, but it seems to have begun when a group of hippos was swept into the open sea from the river where they lived — via Rogue Sun
