It was a big day at the Tulsa Zoo on Tuesday.  The zoo's two sea lions, Dorsey and Briney, celebrated their birthdays.

They were born on May 29, seven years apart.  Dorsey turned 19 and Briney turned 26 this year.  Dorsey was born at Tulsa Zoo.

They each celebrated with a special frozen fish birthday cake.

This is the sea lions' first birthday party in their new home at the Helmerich Sea Lion Cove.

The marine mammals typically live 25 to 30 years in zoos.
