Tampa, Florida -- It was the pirate's life for some cheetahs at Busch Gardens over the weekend, as they took part in the first ever Catsparilla celebration.

Made of a plastic tub, cardboard boxes, a bamboo mast, hay, and other enrichment items, the Catsparilla pirate ship included spices to entice the cheetahs to "board the ship" and even paper mache animals for the cheetahs to pounce on.
