Manila Zoo's oldest resident, fondly referred to as Queen Bertha, passed away Friday of natural causes at the age of 65, according to zoo authorities. Although the exact age of Bertha is difficult to determine in the absence of any paperwork, the zoo claims that she was born in 1952. Bertha was present at the zoo when it opened in 1959. Volunteers at the zoo fondly recalled how Bertha loved sweetcorn and cabbage, which she was fed every week on Saturdays. Bertha was the world's oldest hippo -- wild or captive -- in all of recorded history.
