A hungry, hungry hippo's birthday

Lucifer the African hippopotamus chomps on one of the 4s from his 44th birthday "cake" Thursday at Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. Carefully passing the goodies are volunteer Tom Sinclair, front, and park ranger Ken Torres. Daily, Lucifer eats 15 pounds of alfalfa, four scoops of herbivore diet and 5 gallons of fruit and vegetables.
