True Love 3: Wild Animal Friends (3 videos)

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.

Anjana the Chimp with Sierra, his Baby Puma Friend

Anjana, the chimpanzee, has a new friend, Sierra, a 6-week-old puma cub. That is an unusual combination but chimps seem to be very good at befriending or mothering small creatures of any species, even human. Watch Anjana holding Sierra in her arms, feeding her with a bottle, and playing with her in the grass.

One page 3 you’ll see another unusual pair: a baby rhino who’s been befriended by a warthog.

Baby Rhino is Befriended by a Warthog

Omni, a five-month old baby rhino was abandoned by his mother and really needed a friend. A human feeds him milk but that didn’t satisfy all his needs. Along came an orphaned warthog, Digby, who needed a friend himself. A friend in need is a friend indeed. See the warthog help the rhino by licking off ticks. Then they share a refreshing mud bath together.

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?
