The footage features Fatou picking at the cake with her fingers first before going in for bigger bites. The cake's frosting ends up smeared around Fatou's mouth.

"Many thanks to our keepers for this great birthday cake, Fatou liked it!" the Berlin Zoo said.

Fatou was two-years-old when she arrived at the Berlin Zoo in 1959.
