Busch Gardens - Cheetah & Dog Friends
It may seem like an unlikely pair, but its been a year since Busch Gardens Tampa park guests got to see an 8-week-old male cheetah cub and 16-week-old female yellow labrador puppy play together. They were first snapped for the blogging world to see last April when I published the adorable pics on this very blog, and after a year Busch’s animal experts are expecting their friendship to last a lifetime.
The pair, who were later named Kasi (cheetah) and Mtani (dog), spent only supervised play times together at first. Now, a year later, they live together full time at the park’s Cheetah Run habitat and even travel together to schools, events and more as animal ambassadors.
Park guests can see Kasi and Mtani daily at Cheetah Run, where they spend a portion of each day playing together and training.
It is not really related to coasters or general theme park news, but it is stupidly adorable and amazing, so enjoy the snap!
