TOKYO (Web Desk) – Hundreds of visitors celebrated the 19th birthday of a male gorilla popular for his good looks at a zoo in Japan’s Nagoya city here the other day.

Shabani’s handlers gave him a cake decorated with his favourite vegetables such as pumpkins, tomatoes and bell peppers, public broadcaster NHK reported.


About 500 visitors cheered when Shabani emerged from his cage and took a big bite out of the cake.

Some said “he is cool,” and others shouted “happy birthday.”
