Lucknow, Mar.19 : Lucknow Zoo authorities today celebrated the 16th birthday of a chimpanzee with a lot of zing.
With decorations adorning the wire fencing on the cage and a birthday cake in place, fans of Jason, the chimpanzee, rang in his birthday. The chimp regaled visitors with his antics during the event.
For many, the spectacle was unique and one of its kind as they had never witnessed such a birthday celebration before.
