There were big birthday presents, plates of birthday cake, decorations everywhere, and an excited birthday girl. However, this birthday girl happens to be an eight-year-old chimpanzee and her birthday presents are filled with fruit treats and edible flowers. The window paint is made with yogurt and food coloring. The Zoo keepers are always very creative when planning a chimpanzee party and go the extra step; Zoo keeper Allison even made the birthday cake herself.
