Jorong’s cake goes down a treat!

Male orang utan Jorong thought his 20th birthday cake was magic – as he made it disappear in a flash!


The birthday boy bounded out into the enclosure, grabbed his slice of special cake and took it into a quiet corner where he looked as if he was going to take his time and savour every mouthful.

But within seconds Jorong had wolfed the lot and immediately started to scour the enclosure looking for more.


Upper Primates Keeper Zoe Taylor said: “He quite clearly enjoyed his treat, especially with the grapes on top.”
