Hippopotamus Owen and the turtle Mzi.

This unusual friendship between hippopotamus and turtle began in 2004.Owen lived in Kenya with his family before,but lost all his loved ones after the tsunami in the Indian Ocean.The animal was identified in Haller Park,one of the reserves in Kenya.

But Owen surprisingly found a new family there — a 130-year-old turtle named Mzi!
Soon this unusual friendship became strong and famous all over the world.A year later,the couple became best friends.They are almost always together:while staying in a pond,eating or just lying under a tree in leaves and grass.

Over time,the hippopotamus has adopted turtle habits:he not only sleeps at night,unlike other hippopotamuses,but also feed the turtle with food.Perhaps it would be better to call this a mother-son realtionship than friendship.
