Latin name:  Panthera leo

History:  Born in 2005 in a South Carolina zoo, Mufasa is the resulting cub of sibling lions that were allowed to breed. He and his litter mate were taken to an exotic animal facility in FL. At three months old he was taken in and raised by an experienced, responsible owner. At age 6 & 1/2, his owner needed to relocate to CA and could not take Mufasa with her. He was brought back to the original sanctuary, where he was housed with tigers. Lions are naturally possessive animals and he missed his owner, and he did not get along well with the tigers. The resulting depression and stress caused him to lose over 300 pounds in one year. A joint decision was made to bring him to the Octagon. Mufasa is extremely protective of his habitat and his food, and will take time in adjusting to his new forever home.
