Can't believe havent shared it before:
Baby Hippo gets seperated from his mommy b/c of the Tsunami, lost and frightened he finds an ancient tortoise who at first begrudgingly tolerates him and then ultimately adopts him as his own. Both protect each other, play together, sleep together, and eat together. Little Hippo (Owen) even understands that the Tortoise, (being a male, and NOT a hippo) will kind of ignore him when his fellow tortoise buddies come by to visit (gotta maintain an image after all!)
