Charlie the hippo and Makhosi the rhino were both abandoned by their families, and picked up by rescuers who took them to a wildlife sanctuary. 

Makhosi was inconsolable and couldn't be calmed down, until one of her rescuers decided out of frustration to open up the gate between Makhosi and Charlie's enclosures, letting them meet each other. Incredibly, they bonded almost immediately, snuggling up together and comforting each other.

Since then, they've been at each other's side giving support during tough times!
