National Zoo lions
Baruti, center right, enjoys a cake as Zuri sits at left, and grown female lion, Shera is seen at top during a first birthday celebration for the seven lion cubs at the Smithsonian National Zoological Park on Friday September 16, 2011 in Washington, DC. Four cubs were born on August 31, 2010 and three were born on September 22, 2010. The cubs were given presents and a cake that was made of ice, two whole cow femurs cut in half, five pounds of shaved beef, and a half-gallon of cow blood. Yum!
