May 3 (UPI) -- A real-life cowardly lion at a British zoo was humiliated on his birthday when keepers posted a Facebook video of him being frightened by a soap bubble.

The Paradise Wildlife Park in Broxbourne, England, celebrated the 10th birthday of white lion Moto by sharing Facebook video of one of the lion's "not so finest moments."


The video, filmed by a zookeeper named Tony, shows the lion curiously inspecting a flying bubble in his enclosure.

The bubble lands on the ground and pops, startling Moto and causing him to jump back.

"Happy 10th Birthday Moto!" the zoo wrote. "Here's one of his not so finest moments, getting scared of a little bubble."
