Busch Gardens Tampa welcomes two new adorable baby Cheetahs
Busch Gardens has some new additions to the park in the form of two new adorable baby cheetahs.
The two cubs are three months old and are currently under 24-hour-care as the cubs continue to get stronger and explore their new home.
The cubs were born on Nov. 22, 2014 and weigh approximately 12 pounds. Their names, which were given by the Busch Gardens animal care team, are Tendai, meaning “thankful,” and Thabo, meaning “joy.”
Once the cubs are old enough, they will start their own coalition as part of Cheetah Run, the innovative cheetah habitat that opened alongside Busch Gardens’ triple-launch coaster, Cheetah Hunt, in 2011. Until then, guests can see the cubs at various times throughout the day in the Edge of Africa area of the park, or by taking an Animal Care Center Behind The Scenes tour through Sunday, March 1.
