With a basket of fruits and vegetables … the world's oldest gorilla, "Fatu", celebrates its 66th birthday

Yesterday, Thursday, the Berlin Zoo celebrated the arrival of the gorilla "Fatu" at the age of 66, by giving her a basket of vegetables and fruits.

A video published by the garden on her Instagram account, "Fatou", documented her tampering with a bouquet of berries and a watermelon on which her age was carved, while emptying the contents of a basket of pomegranate and strawberry slices and enjoying devouring them with apparent happiness.

Fatu is known as the largest gorilla in the world, and lives in the Berlin Zoo, which is keen to celebrate her birthday every year.

Fatou has lived at the Berlin Zoo since 1959, and a captain is said to have delivered the young gorilla in Marseille at that time to pay his bill in a bar.

After that, it was moved to different places in Europe, until it was bought by the Berlin Zoo. The zoo estimated Fatu's age by about two years when it arrived.

And in 2019, the Guinness Book of Records classified “Fatu” as the oldest gorilla in the world. 64 years old.

The Berlin Zoo is the oldest and most famous zoo in Germany, which opened in 1844 on an area of 35 hectares (86.5 acres) in the Tiergarten district of Berlin. The zoo contains about 1,380 different species of animals.
