Phineus the Rhino turns one

Dozens of people gathered Saturday to wish an East Texas baby rhino Happy birthday.  Phineus the baby black rhino was born a year ago at the Caldwell Zoo in Tyler.  Saturday, zoo keepers brought out a large cake for Phineus and his mom to enjoy.  It was made with layers of frozen produce.  The birthday party was a big hit for both kids and adults.

The zoo also had a raffle going for visitors to guess how much Phineus weighs.  It's helping raise money for conservation efforts and the winner gets a painting that one of the rhinos drew.
