True Love 3: Wild Animal Friends (3 videos)

  • 1 of 3

Here’s 3 more in this popular series; following up on the adorable True Love and True Love 2.

Not little household pets this time but rather wild animals pairs: a tortoise and a hippo below, a chimp and a baby puma on page 2, and a baby rhino and a warthog on page 3. It seems that true love has no bounds. Go ahead, get your fill.

The Tortoise and the Hippo

This is about the strangest odd couple we’ve seen: Mzee, a 130-year-old giant tortoise, and Owen, a young hippo. Can a tortoise and a hippo actually become friends? As you will seen from this video they were inseparable for quite a while until Owen grew up and was ready for a mate. The story ends happily with Owen living with Cleo, a young female hippo, and Mzee back with another tortoise friend.

Next up, on page 2, meet Arjana the chimp and his baby puma friend.

Owen and Mzee have always been one of my favourite stories... but I never heard the ending before. I think it is very sad that they were separated. And I couldn't access the second video - something about copyrights?

Are these one of the signs of the end time? Where the lion will lay down with the lamb?

Well, I won't say anything to my husband when he swears again. It does stress me out though.
