The baby hippopotamus pictured above survived the tsunami waves that swept the Kenyan coast.

The hippo, named Owen, having lost his mother in the tragedy, accepted the tortoise, a male, as mother. "It is incredible. A-less-than-a-year-old hippo has adopted as a parent a male tortoise, about a century old, and the tortoise seems to be very happy with being a mother," ecologist Paula Kahumbu, who is in charge of Lafarge Park, told AFP.
