Now We Are Four

Smithsonian’s National Zoo’s Giant Panda Turns Four!
Originally uploaded by Smithsonian’s National Zoo

The National Zoo never fails to amuse me with their party celebrations for the various animals in their care. St. Patrick’s Day with the apes, birthday parties for the panda… Tai Shan turns four today, and keepers made him a “birthday cake” out of beets and fruit, and presenting it to him with singing.

I’m not sure if I should be weirded out by all the anthropomorphizing of the animals, or relieved that the keepers entertain themselves in this way.
