MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Sugriva, one of the chimpanzees at the Myrtle Beach Safari, celebrated his fifth birthday in style with a party, cake, and lots of presents.

The safari posted some adorable videos of the chimp’s party, including Sugriva deftly blowing out his birthday candle:

Sugriva is one of dozens animals at the Myrtle Beach Safari, which offers a guided tour through the fifty-acre preserve, and the T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station at Barefoot Landing, a "living tiger museum." Both support animal conservation programs in Asia and Africa.

Check out their Facebook page for more great videos of their rare and exotic animals.

Vali and Sugriva sometimes take trips into Myrtle Beach to catch a movie, like the recent Tarzan film and the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
