The Fort Worth Zoo is celebrating a birthday party for one of its newest residents.

Asha, a greater one-horned rhino, turned one year old on August 16.

The zoo treated the young rhino and her mother, Shanti, to a birthday cake made of ice blocks filled with fruits and vegetables.

Watch video of the rhinos chowing down below, and stay to see footage of Asha from a few days after she was born at the end of the embedded clip.

The rhino isn't the only youngster at the zoo. A baby elephant was born on July 7. The public helped name that female elephant Belle.
