Although shy at first, Chori quickly digs in, happily snacking on grapes from the top of the cake.

"To celebrate the magic milestone in every girl's life, zoo keeper Ash Clarke made a delicious cake consisting of all her favourite fruit and decorated with the freshest of bamboo shoots," the wildlife park wrote as it shared the video to Facebook.

Chori arrived at the park six years ago as part of its red panda captive breeding program. She shares an enclosure with Indira, another female red panda.

She "fast became one of the zoo's stars, through her constant look of happiness," the wildlife park said. She also helps visitors understand more about endangered species, it said.

See the adorable panda celebrate her birthday:

On average, red pandas live to the age of eight but Chori continues to take great care of herself in her twilight years.

Keeper Ash said: "She is definitely a little bit of diva in the mornings, always spending a good five to ten minutes grooming herself before coming down from the tree, even for a cake as delicious looking as this. But that's Chori for you!"
