We at my place read DNA News paper; DNA has ME a Sunday magazine that has beautiful articles every Sunday, this Sunday I found this small touching story, and thought of sharing it with you all.
The story reads -
“Owen, the hippopotamus who weighed about 3000 kg. was swept into River Sabaki and into the Indian Ocean, and forced back ashore when tsunami waves struck Kenya coast on December 26, before wildlife rangers rescued him. Without a mother, hippo Owen was traumatized. Now, he has found a surrogate mother in a century-old giant male tortoise in an animal facility in Mombassa.
The two swim, eat and sleep together. Owen also follows the tortoise exactly the way it follows its mother. If someone approaches the tortoise, Owen becomes aggressive, as if protecting his biological mother. This true story shows that our differences don’t matter when we need the comfort of another.“
Isn’t it an amazing thing ?, The best part I liked in this story is, the way the writer has narrated the end saying – Our differences don’t matter when we need the comfort of another.
