Busch Gardens is asking the public to help name two sister lion cubs that have come to live at the Tampa theme park.
The duo, born on Feb. 20 in South Africa, are joined by an unrelated male cub, born March 20. The threesome arrived at Busch Gardens on May 18. They all have genetic lines from the Kalahari and Kruger regions of South Africa, Busch Gardens says.
Polling for the names, which runs through June 18, is done on the Busch Gardens Tampa Facebook page. The choices are Malaika & Mlinzi or Shtuko & Shaba.
Once the cubs are large enough, they will be introduced them to the lion and hyena habitat of the Edge of Africa attraction at the park.
