    Everyone deserves a birthday celebration, but pachyderms may not like the conventional human method of cake-cutting. A mother and baby elephant duo in India has introduced its own way to mark the special day.

    A cake-cutting ceremony to mark a baby elephant's birthday got a little messy when the calf decided to eat the entire treat as it was rather than having it sliced first, like humans do. The baby jumbo was accompanied by the mother, who joined her baby in munching on whatever was left of the cake, all while people surrounded the pair - presumably expecting to be treated to a piece of the cake too.
