Mai Thai the Elephant Celebrates 45th Birthday at Cincinnati Zoo

Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden celebrated Mai Thai the elephant’s 45th birthday by giving her presents and bamboo sticks on May 1.

A clip shared on the zoo’s Facebook page shows Mai Thai chomping down on some bamboo sticks and showing interest in a number of presents in front of an excited crowd at the zoo’s elephant reserve.

Mai Thai can be seen eating a cardboard box, which won’t cause her harm, according to a zoo employee speaking during the clip. She received several presents marked “45.”

The video has received tens of thousands of views and thousands of likes.
