SAN ANTONIO — It was a party fit for an elephant at the San Antonio Zoo today.
The zoo celebrated the 60th birthday of Lucky, the Asian elephant.
Lucky, the zoo's oldest pachyderm, was joined by Golden Girls, Nichole and Karen.
The elephants enjoyed a custom "fruit" cake and played in the Asian elephant yard which was colorfully decorated with tissue paper flowers, a birthday banner, vibrant "present" boxes, a tiered stack of tires decorated with apples and peanut butter, and a ton of fruit and veggies.
Zoo staff invited fans along for the celebration via Facebook live and shared facts about the elephants' care, their noises, and what makes each elephant unique.
From us here at KENS 5, we want to wish Lucky a very happy birthday!
