The US’s oldest polar bear, Coldilocks (THAT’S ACTUALLY HER NAME AND I CAN’T STOP LOVING IT), turned 37 on Thursday and the Philadelphia Zoo held a party in her honor.
Happy birthday to Coldilocks! At 37 years old, Coldilocks in the oldest #polarbear in the country! Join us tomorrow as we celebrate Coldi's birthday with treats, presents, singing, BEARthday cake and more! pic.twitter.com/dwymK59dj4

Coldilocks is absolutely killing it, considering the average life span of a polar bear in captivity is about 23 years.

Some of Coldilocks’s best friends came by to sing “Happy Birthday” and present her will a delicious honey, peanut butter, raisin, and fish-filled cake. A fitting present for such a wonderful being.
Happy Birthday Coldilocks! Today we celebrated our favorite polar bear's 37th #birthday with special treats and a cake complete with honey, raisins, peanut butter, and, of course, fish! #phillyzoo #philadelphiazoo #polarbear #happybirthday #birthdaygirl pic.twitter.com/1b0qVOtpvT

Coldilocks used to live her partner, Klondike (ANOTHER GREAT POLAR BEAR NAME AHHHHHHH), but he unfortunately passed away at the ripe old age of 35.
Regardless, Coldilocks is killing it as an old lady and I hope she sees many more delicious birthday cakes in the future.
