Polar Bear Celebrates 26th Birthday With Cake at Washington Zoo

A polar bear at a zoo in Tacoma, Washington, celebrated his 26th birthday with “cake, a tree, a big barrel and more than 2,000 pounds of ice,” the zoo said.

Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium released footage of Blizzard enjoying cake made out of carrots, peanut butter, yogurt and blueberries at the zoo.

The zoo said Blizzard is a senior bear and that the median life expectancy for polar bears is 23 years.

“We love celebrating Blizzard,” Malia Somerville, the zoo’s marine mammal curator, said. “We give Blizzard exceptional care and attention year-round, but on his birthday, we go all out.” Credit: Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium via Storyful
