Birthday boy, Benji!

No birthday is complete without cake and birthday boy, Benji, wasn’t disappointed with his this morning!

DZG Benji bday 1 Our oldest Bornean orangutan turns 39 today and keepers appeared with a tasty treat first thing this morning, packed full of fruit, veg and primate pellets.

Section Leader, Pat Stevens, said: “Benji is one of our real characters at DZG and deserved a special celebration for his big day.

“As well as cards and a cake, we also made him up some enrichment sacks, which kept him busy as he rooted through them to discover what was hidden inside.

“And we cut up his cake and shared it with Jorong, Jazz and Sprout, who all enjoyed tucking into their slices.”
