COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The first gorilla born in a zoo is turning 57 with a celebration broadcast live to online viewers from her central Ohio home.
The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium says the female western lowland gorilla, named Colo, will celebrate her birthday Sunday with a yogurt-frosted cake made of peanut butter, applesauce, honey and shredded carrots. The zoo says its website will stream video of Colo receiving the cake and other gifts filled with treats such as berries and tomatoes.
Colo was born at the zoo in 1956. Officials there say she is the oldest gorilla in any zoo.
Colo is a mother of three. Her family tree includes more than two dozen descendants living at zoos across the country.
