Elephant lovers are being sought by the Changsha Zoo in Hunan province to help celebrate the 18th birthday of Pa Ke, an Asian elephant.

In addition to a large birthday cake made of apples, watermelons and other fruits, Pa Ke will wear a red outfit at the party.

The zoo hopes to find 10 people who are 18 years old to help at the party.

Pa Ke, who has lived in Changsha for seven years, has grown to 3.3 meters from 2.8 meters. It weighs more than four tons, a ton more since he moved to the zoo seven years ago.

Its nose also grew 0.6 meters longer.
