Marmoset Celebrates 12th Birthday at Phoenix Zoo

A marmoset enjoyed a delicious treat as he celebrated his 12th birthday on Wednesday, April 13, the Phoenix Zoo said.

Phoenix Zoo posted this video of “birthday boy” Tyson, a Geoffroy’s marmoset, digging into his birthday dessert.

According to the zoo, Tyson’s cake was made of “his canned marmoset food shaped to look like a cupcake, frosted with cashew butter (sugar-free and diabetic-friendly) and topped with waxworms.” Credit: Phoenix Zoo via Storyful
