This is Owen and Mzee. He was the only hippo in his little troop to survive the tsunami . He became best buds with the tortoise. Scientists did some studies on the pair to determine if animal can develop friendships or not. Interesting read and very heart warming!

There’s a really cute picture book about these two that I always look through when reshelving it at my library. Which means I tear up a lot when reshelving. Not just because of this books. So many kids books.

I can never look at hippos the same way ever since I found out how deadly and terrifying they are

Got to walk the red carpet at the TriBeCa film festival as a kid because my brothers and I made an animation about these guys based on the scholastic book made on them!

As usual the raccoon is nowhere to be seen. Probably messing with the fox. Again.

I feel like tortoises are highly befriendable. It’s not like they can get away from you!
