Cheetah Run, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, Tampa, FL, USA
On Friday, March 9, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment will broadcast the most recent installment of its Saving a Species series, which features some of Busch Gardens Tampa’s most popular new residents — the cheetahs — and St. Petersburg’s Tropicana Field.
With the stadium closed to outside visitors and the turf marked for the St. Petersburg Bowl football game, the cheetahs were encouraged to run the length of the field, chasing a lure system identical to the one in their Cheetah Run habitat. The cats’ efforts were captured by high-definition and slow-motion cameras.
