Lion cub sisters at Busch Gardens now have names

Two lion cub sisters born at Busch Gardens Tampa now have names, thanks to the public. After a weeklong Facebook poll in which 6,000 votes were cast, the three-month-old cubs have been dubbed Shaba, meaning "brazen", and Shtuko, meaning "twitch". The cubs - along with an unrelated male cub - arrived from South Africa on May 18 and can soon be seen in the Edge of Africa area, park officials said.
