Jersey Zoo in celebration!
In fact who made the party were Badongo and Indigo. The last day of September 27 was the birthday of the two gorillas. Just take a look at this video, where they come out enjoying all their lovely gifts, although Indigo has almost been stolen by another gorilla.
Badongo and Indigo were really spoiled by the keepers! Gifts received included porridge, nuts, leaves, honey and marmite.
