Question: What was the first animal you had at Nature of Wildworks?

From: Joanna -Topanga, CA

Answer: The first animal to grace our center was Phoenix the mountain lion. In captivity, mountain lions enjoy the same life span as a house cat: approximately ten to twenty years. So I guess it's fair to say that Phoenix is an old man lion. He had been experiencing some problems such as: heavy breathing, loss of appetite, and very runny eyes. Aging animals have many of the same health problems that we humans experience: heart, respiratory and kidney trouble, arthritis, and just general aches and pains.
