Here's an Elephant Enjoying His 50-Pound Birthday Cake

The Oregon Zoo's elephant Packy waded even deeper into middle age this week when he turned 53 years old. And while they couldn't create the gigantic party hat he requested, the zookeepers did get the guy a special 50lb birthday cake. From the looks of it, the thing was more of a vegetable & fruit medley than a straight-up sheet cake, but it certainly put that hedgehog's puny dessert to shame. Watch Packy demolish his treat above.

Kristin Hunt is a Food/Drink staff writer for Thrillist, and would like an elephant present at her next birthday party. Follow her to guest lists at @kristin_hunt.
