by Staff

Did you happen to catch the SeaWorld and Busch Gardens animal ambassadors Tuesday when they visited The Tonight Show with Jay Leno? On her 55th show appearance, Julie Scardina brought some of the parks newest and favorite animals. The lineup of exotic animals included Kasi and Mtani, the cheetah cub and Labrador puppy, Asian small clawed otters, several baby owls and a crocodile monitor. Didn’t catch it? Here are the highlights, including videos, from the show.

Kasi made his national late night TV debut.

Jay got up-close and personal with a few owls. Although one had his eye on something in the rafters!
