This Tuesday was Kasi's 2nd Birthday...and he is entering the "not-so-terrible twos."
Two of the animals that are most-loved by our guests are Kasi, the young cheetah and his canine companion, Mtani. Remember when Kasi was just a baby? At the time, our guests were surprised to learn that Kasi and Mtani would in fact, be lifelong companions.
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay’s famous cheetah cub, Kasi, visited the park’s new Animal Care Center yesterday for his one-year check-up.
My coworkers and I celebrated Kasi's birthday this past Sunday, Feb. 19. What a day it was!
Both he and Mtani had great fun getting into all of the “gifts” and ripping up the banners!
Busch Gardens has a great new FREE tool to assist teachers, specifically in teaching the concept of change over time to learning audiences of all ages.
This year’s Long Term Investigation Project, entitled: Kasi & Mtani: Forever Friends, focuses on the growth and development of Kasi and Mtani, our cheetah cub and his puppy pal.
This is part 2 of "A Day in the Life of Kasi" the Baby Cheetah...
The afternoon for Kasi and Mtani is spent doing all kinds of fun things. The two of them make at least two appearances each day at Cheetah Run. The bigger cheetahs go inside for a break and the entire exhibit is given over to the unlikely pair. There is always lots of chasing and playing. Sometimes even an accidental plunge into the waterfall! Kasi enjoys playing with a wide array of different items.
Only six months old and arguably the most famous animal at Busch Gardens Tampa, Kasi the cheetah cub already has quite a following.
Hi, my name is Anna Chaney. I am an animal keeper for Busch Gardens and I take care of Kasi every day as my job.
