Giant Panda celebrates 4th Birthday

Giant Panda

Tai Shan, a Giant Panda, recently celebrated his 4th birthday at the  Smithsonian’s National Zoo. Many guests attended his birthday party and the main attraction of the party was a three-tiered "veggie-sicle" cake. The frozen cake was made over the course of two weeks by Zoo commissary staff by freezing a combination of water, beets and beet juice while enhancing it with bamboo and fruit. Tai quickly took to the frozen treat, licking at the ice, spotting his furry face with the melting beet juice. Take a look at the pictures.
