Zoo Atlanta threw a birthday party fit for a queen for their oldest Orangutan, Biji, on her 50th birthday. 

The Orangutan Care Team put together a 70s themed birthday party complete with disco balls to celebrate the year that Biji was born — 1970. 

Biji feasted on a "cake" made out of juice and frozen fruit, and she even had her own ice-sculpture "50" with peanuts inside.

Happy birthday, Biji! We are so grateful to get to celebrate this milestone with you.

The guest of honor also sat on a special throne — a burlap bag — which the Zoo says is a much more comfortable seat for an older ape. 

Biji's birthday boxes were filled with even more of her favorite snacks — hay, produce, and popcorn — which she happily chowed down on. 

Biji is so loved and admired at Zoo Atlanta that she even got a second birthday party behind the scenes. 

Crack open a cold one — I mean, peanut — and cheers to Biji on her 50th birthday!
