Orangutan Family Enjoy Mom's 30th Birthday Presents at Australian Zoo

An orangutan and her son celebrated her 30th birthday with special treats from keepers at the Perth Zoo in South Perth, Western Australia, footage released by the zoo shows.

Footage of the party shows Sekara the orangutan investigating a sign reading “Happy 30th Birthday, Sekara,” while her son absconds with the cake.

Sekara then opens her presents in boxes. The apes are then shown nimbly climbing onto high platforms to enjoy the treats.

According to a press release from the Perth Zoo, Sekara received a jelly ice block cake and presents filled with orangutan-appropriate treats, including “dried figs, apples, and carrots.”

Sekara received press coverage for escaping from her enclosure in 2017 and forcing zoo evacuations. Credit: Perth Zoo via Storyful
