Everyone loves a cake on their birthday - even animals. So we're pleased to see this gorilla enjoying a special celebratory treat.

AmBam recently turned 24 and, to mark the occasion, he tucked into some well-deserved cake.

Specially made by SugarRush Baking Company, the cake was gorilla friendly and, instead of the usual sugar and cream, it was made of a variety of tasty vegetables.

The huge animal is a Western lowland gorilla and lives at Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in Kent. Weighing a hefty 220kgs, he is the largest and most famous gorilla at the park.

We love that he got his own cake – but we'll definitely be sticking to chocolate and icing when it's our birthdays!
