While several hundred thousand people attended the Gasparilla pirate invasion, parade, and street festival in and around downtown Tampa this past weekend, the cheetahs at Busch Gardens Tampa got their own special event - Catsparilla!

The cheetahs were treated to paper mache animals to pounce on, and a ship comprised of a plastic tub, cardboard boxes, a bamboo mast, hay and other enrichment items. The Catsparilla pirate ship also included spices to entice the cheetahs to "board the ship."

Pictures below from the event are provided courtesy of Busch Gardens Tampa:
