July 13, 1937: Peter the Great, a Bronx Zoo hippopotamus, feasted on carrots on his 34th birthday — a welcome improvement over the fiasco of his 31st, which, The Times reported, was “full of disappointment and bad luck.” On that dark day, Friday the 13th, not only did rain — Peter’s preferred weather — fail to materialize, but his misery peaked when a chocolate cake, brought by an admirer, was devoured in front of his eyes by a mob of greedy schoolboys.
