Luke, the male African lion at Smithsonian’s National Zoo took a break from his afternoon bone to watch the snowflakes fall in Washington, D.C. Although it does not snow in his native Africa, Luke seemed content to lie outside of his heated den and finish his lunch, occasionally shaking the snow from his mane. Luke and the Zoo’s three female African lions can been seen at the Zoo’s Great Cats exhibit.
