Baby cheetah, pup to appear tonight on 'Leno'

The rest of the country is about to meet Tampa bay's hottest, cutest couple as Kasi the baby cheetah and his puppy pal, Mtani the Labrador retriever, appear on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno tonight.

The adorable pair, who are quickly becoming one of Busch Gardens' most popular attractions in their Jambo Junction digs, will appear with Julie Scardina of Busch Gardens as she brings animal ambassadors from SeaWorld and Busch Gardens on the program, which airs at 11:30 p.m. on WFLA-Ch. 8. The appearance was announced on the Busch Gardens blog.

The lineup of exotic animals Scardina will present will also include Asian small-clawed otters, several baby owls and three different species of lizards.
