By NEWSChannel 2 Staff

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The Utica Zoo is celebrating three special, first birthdays Tuesday - as African Lion Cubs Murphy and Coki turn one year old, as does Sea Lion Zoey.

The zoo staff are planning fun activities for both the birthday boy and girls, along with their human guests.

"It's usually either a food or a toy that we throw in and we get to see the animals play with it and we're also going to be having activities and keeper talks in our Docent Discovery Cottage in our Children's Zoo, so there's a lot going on tonight," said Zoo Communications Director Daniee Hurlbert.

All the birthday festivities are included in the regular zoo admission price.
