Facebook Fans Name Busch Gardens Tampa’s Lion Cub Sisters

Shaba and Shtuko - Lion Cub Sisters - Busch Gardens Tampa 3

Tampa, Fla.– Busch Gardens® Tampa recently welcomed three lion cubs to the park, one male and two unrelated females.   After a week long 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.
