As mentioned yesterday, our trip to the zoo was prompted by the birthday celebrations of the beautiful Tricia the elephant. A long time resident of the Perth Zoo, Tricia turned 58 yesterday and to celebrate the zoo docents made a pretty darn magnificent elephant cake packed full of fruit and bran and other things I assume elephants find delicious. Ever the kindly matriarch, Tricia let her young friend Permai both start digging into the cake first AND give it a good smash up later on.
Now that is a happy elephant!! For more photos of Tricia's big day check out Perth Daily Photo :)
