I have a meeting I’m rushing off to, so posting will be light for a few hours, but you won’t even notice I’m gone, because you’ll be too busy looking at this photo set of the National Zoo’s baby Lion cubs taking a “swimming test”! I think they passed, with flying paddling colors.

I would like to volunteer for the next swim test, thanks.


The Smithsonian’s National Zoo’s 8-week-old lion cubs took a swim test in the moat at the Great Cats Exhibit. The cubs– 3 females and 1 male– were born August 30 and 31 to 5-year-old mother, Shera, and 5-year-old father, Luke.

I love D.C.
