Winning names chosen for lion cubs at Busch Gardens

TAMPA — The winning names for lion cub sisters, two of three new additions to Busch Gardens' Edge of Africa attraction, were announced Friday.

After a week-long poll and 6,000 votes from the amusement park's Facebook fans, the winning names for the three-month-old cubs are Shaba, meaning "brazen," and Shtuko, meaning "twitch."

Guests can see the cubs at the attraction all summer long and beyond. More information and updates about the progress of the new cubs will be posted on BuschGardensTampaBlog.com.

Busch Gardens is owned and operated by SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment.
