Yakini the gorilla was spoiled with treats on his 19th birthday, November 28, at Victoria’s Werribee Open Range Zoo. This video shows the western lowland gorilla enjoying popcorn, cereal and dry druits on his big day. Yakini is described as a “king” as he is the leader of his group after another gorilla, Motaba, stepped down to enjoy his twilight years. “As a leader, he sits back and assess situations. He’s very patient and measured with his younger brother,” keeper Kathleen Scanlon said. The species is considered critically endangered. Credit: Werribee Open Range Zoo via Storyful
