Busch Gardens' Facebook Fans Name Lion Cub Sisters

Busch Gardens Tampa recently welcomed three lion cubs to the park, one male and two unrelated females. After a weeklong poll, 6,000 Busch Gardens Tampa Facebook fans voted to name the two lion cub sisters. The winning names for the three-month-old cubs are Shaba, meaning “brazen”, and Shtuko, meaning “twitch”.

The Busch Gardens animal care team has started introducing the cubs to the Edge of Africa attraction at the park, where guests can see the cubs all summer long and beyond. More information and updates about the progress of the new cubs will be posted on Facebook.
