MARZIPLANET OF THE APES; have my cake and eat it giant male gorilla's not for sharing No one is stealing treat from silverback Ambam.

Byline: matthew young

ONE of the biggest gorillas in the world celebrated his 27th birthday in style yesterday.

Silverback Ambam - who walks on his hind legs just like a human - munched down on a tasty two-tiered carrot cake topped off with hardboiled eggs.

Alpha male Ambam rules the roost at Port Lympne wildlife park near Ashford in Kent - and none of the 20 western lowland gorillas in his troop were prepared to challenge him for his birthday treat.

And it was no wonder as, standing on his back legs, he proudly showed off his well-earned belly and impressive 34st frame for the cameras.

You'd have to be living on a different planet to think of tackling the king of the apes.
