Zoo authorities in the Indian capital Delhi are holding a party to celebrate the 57th birthday of Rita the chimpanzee, its oldest resident.
 
The "birthday girl" will get presents and a cake will be cut in her honour, Zoo director Renu Singh.
 
India's oldest living chimpanzee was born in Amsterdam in 1960 and arrived at Delhi zoo as a four-year-old.
 
She's a "very friendly" ape, Singh said. "We will cut a cake and I'll feed a big slice to Rita with my hands."
 
"We will also screen some wildlife films for her as a birthday treat as she's very fond of watching videos and observes them very intently," She added.
 
Since Rita doesn't leave her enclosure much, a big screen will be put up outside from where children, journalists, and visitors will be able to see her.
