Shabani's handlers gave him a cake decorated with his favourite vegetables such as pumpkins, tomatoes and bell peppers, public broadcaster NHK reported. About 500 visitors cheered when Shabani emerged from his cage and took a big bite out of the cake.

Some said "he is cool," and others shouted "happy birthday".

In human years, Shabani is in his late 30s.

A collection of photos of Shabani went viral online. A woman said he is masculine and looks very good, even better than her husband. A man with his family said he cannot rival Shabani in terms of good looks.
