"Owen turned around and came face to face with an old tortoise.  At first Owen was scared. The tortoise was old and wrinkly, but his eyes twinkled and he seemed kind."

When a baby hippo is separated from his mother by a tsunami, he is rescued and brought to an animal refuge, where he forms an unlikely but comforting bond with an ancient, patient tortoise.

Based on a true story.
