Giant Tortoise Adopts Baby Hippo
categories: Articles, Cute, Pics

This story is kinda old, but I’m sure there’s a few people out there who haven’t seen it. And the pictures are enough to make grown men coddle their computer monitors and coo like babies, and that sort of power should not be kept under wraps.

Oh, I have just recently come across this and I think it is absolutely adorable, brought tears to my eyes. I love turtles and have rescued 5 desert box turtles. They are so under-rated, they do have personalities and this story confirms their love and that they build relationships!! Awesome, simply amazing!!

Now that Owen is all grown up has he moved away, or are they still hanging out together ?
As this original story continues to circulate around the world I would love some more current updates about what happened and how they are doing.

I really like the name of the hippo for some reason, and I hadn't seen the last four pictures before. The one where Owen has his head on the turtle is lovely.
