Edinburgh Zoo’s largest residents, the greater one-horned rhinos Bertus and Samir, have celebrated their seventh birthdays with a joint party.

The animals keepers made a large birthday “cake” out of hay and decorated it with rhino treats including grass, fruit and vegetables. And kept bamboo sticks for candles with carrot “flames”.

Bertus and Samir were both born in 2008 and moved to Edinburgh in 2010 from Rotterdam and Stuttgart respectively.

The rhinos will also be given lots of extra browse and fresh grass as an extra birthday treat.”
