Bertus – one of Edinburgh Zoo’s one-horned rhinoceroses – was the two-tonne birthday boy as he celebrated turning five with a surprise party.

Keepers treated him to a special ice block “cake” and a cooling hose down. Lorna Hughes, head keeper for hoofstock and primates, said: “Bertus loves getting ice blocks with different treats stuck to it. He can spend hours licking and chomping on it and doesn’t mind sharing with Samir, our other one-horned rhino.”
