There were celebrations in the chimpanzee house as Banika turned 19-years-old.
Keepers treated the primate, who is the youngest of DZG’s seven chimps, to a homemade banana birthday cake and card. There were also fruit jelly cups to share with the rest of the girls.
Lower Primates Section Leader Nicola Wright, said: “Whenever there is a birthday, we always make sure there are plenty of special treats for allseven girls, so they can all join in the celebrations. Everyone loves jelly and birthday cake, including chimpanzees!”
