Penzi an African elephant calf at the Reid Park Zoo has celebrated her first birthday with keepers throwing a party for her and the herd. She was a symbol of hope with her birth coming at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The not so little calf tipped the scales at 504kg (1,110lbs). She was able to celebrate her birthday with a large cake formed from ice and topped with watermelon candles.
