With Gasparilla taking place over the weekend in Downtown Tampa, the folks at Busch Gardens Tampa decided to let the cheetahs in on the fun, too.
Cheetahs Jenna and Tiree celebrated their first ever “Catsparilla,” complete with their very own pirate ship.
The ship was made of a plastic tub, cardboard boxes, a bamboo mast, hay and other enrichment items. The ship itself contained spices to entice the big cats to board their ship, where they found papier mache animals to pounce on.
