Gorilla is left unimpressed by birthday celebrations

Read lifestyle news as you browse for animal fancy dress with Escapade

A gorilla was left looking unimpressed by his keeper's attempts at celebrating his 50th birthday.

Perhaps Nico – Europe's oldest silverback – was expecting a 'person-a-gram' (there'd be no point getting him a gorilla-gram, after all), but he appeared a bit fed up when he was presented with a bunch of roses by staff at Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire.
