The Greenville Zoo's orangutan will celebrate his eighth birthday this month by making his Super Bowl pick.

The zoo announced on Friday they will be holding a special birthday bash for Bob, a Bornean orangutan, with presents, cupcakes and Bob's big game pick.

For Bob's fifth birthday in 2011, he successfully predicted the Super Bowl by choosing a Packers T-shirt over a Steelers T-shirt.

The event will be on Saturday, Jan. 25 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the orangutan exhibit at the Greenville Zoo. Bob's Super Bowl pick will begin at 2 p.m.

The event is free with the purchase of a general admission ticket.

Orangutans life expectancy is about 30 years old in the wild and 50 years old in captivity.
