Latin name:  Panthera leo

History:  Male lion. His owner was trying to stunt his growth by keeping him in a pet carrier made for a large dog (his fur will not grow back on his nose and parts of his face because of the small area to turn around in) and feeding him can dog food. He was one when we got him and looked like he was only five months. We thought he would stay small but with a proper diet and vitamins, he grew and grew and grew! He is only 8 years old.
