Busch Lion Cubs Get Names

Busch Lion Cubs Get Names

Tampa, Fla.-(970 WFLA)-Busch Gardens' lion cub sisters now have names.  The three month-old cubs are named Shaba, meaning "brazen," and Shtuko, meaning "twitch."

The names come after a weeklong poll of 6,000 Busch Gardens Facebook fans. The people taking part in the poll actually voted on the names.

The Busch Gardens animal care team has started introducing the cubs to the Edge of Africa attraction.  Guests can see the cubs all summer long and beyond.
