Turns out millennials aren’t the only ones who love avocado.

Gonzo, the tamandua, celebrated his 4th birthday at Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma, Washington with a “special insectivore and avocado cake.”

As an additional present, the zoo gave Gonzo some social media love on Monday.

And yes, he does like going for walks in his harness, according to the zoo.

Tamanduas are a type of anteaters.

And, Gonzo has a 16-inch — and very sticky — tongue.
