Tampa, Florida -- Three lion cubs from South Africa are the newest additions to Busch Gardens.  

The two females, who are sisters, were born March 20. The male, who is not related, was born February 20.  All three cubs are from a region in South Africa where lions are recognized for their large size and impressive manes.

Busch Gardens is also giving the public a chance to help name the lion cub sisters. People can cast their vote for their favorite pair of names by logging onto the Busch Gardens Tampa Facebook Page. 

The lion cubs aren't the only big kitties to be born recently at the theme park.  Three Malayan tiger cubs were also born earlier this year.
