Wish #0:  to eat the cake

Koko is a normal gorilla in many respects, and "food" is one of a gorilla"s best friends. So, you can bet that one of Koko"s basic desires was to actually eat the cake. Here she is savoring her first bite, while Penny holds the candles.

Thank you for emailing us your best guesses for Koko"s top 3 wishes. Yes, most of you were right: having a baby (hopefully with Ndume), moving to the Maui Ape Preserve, and protecting other gorillas around the world, are her top priorities now.
