Monkey Celebrates 31st Birthday at Dallas Zoo

The Dallas Zoo threw a birthday party for 31-year-old mona monkey Asante on June 30.

Asante is one of the oldest known mona monkeys in human care worldwide, the zoo said.

Footage uploaded to Facebook by the zoo shows Asante tearing into presents and eating treats with other monkeys.

“She’s kind of a big deal around here, as you can tell from this incredible birthday bash that her adoring keepers put together,” said the Dallas Zoo. Credit: Dallas Zoo via Storyful
