Tsunami hippo befriends tortoise

A baby hippo rescued after floods in Kenya caused by the tsunami in the Indian Ocean has befriended a 100-year-old tortoise in a zoo.
The one-year-old hippo calf, who keepers have called Owen, was found alone and dehydrated by wildlife rangers near the ocean.

He was put in a wildlife enclosure near Mombassa, and soon became pals with the tortoise, who is a similar colour.

Park officials say they sleep and eat together, and have become inseparable.
