She shares a birthday with Roman emperor Hadrian, singer Neil Diamond and most fittingly famous zoologist Desmond Morris - but no-one will be having a bigger celebration than Perth Zoo's elephant Tricia.
One of the oldest Asian elephants in Australia turns 57 on Friday, and was presented a two-tier peanut butter, bran and fruit birthday cake to mark the milestone.
Tricia arrived at Perth Zoo from Singapore in January 1963, is its longest resident, and is the matriarch of a herd that includes her 24-year-old female companion Permai and 24-year-old male elephant Putra Mas.
Like most other more senior citizens, Tricia has less hair than she used to and is on another set of teeth - her sixth to be exact.
The big girl still had an active day - indulging in her favourite painting activity before getting a birthday massage and then a game of soccer with Permani.
She was also due to be presented a jumbo-sized birthday card painted by two of her interstate peers, senior Asian elephants Burma and Gigi at Taronga Western Plains Zoo in NSW.
Tricia's art, along with that of the other Perth Zoo elephants, is sold to raise funds for wildlife conservation.
