Chico is our resident serval cat and true to his nature he is very shy and prefers nocturnal activities. Before Chico came to live at Jukani he was kept in a very small enclosure, on a lion breeder's far, in the Free State Province of South Africa. Chico and had a very tough life............he was constantly being chased from hsi hiding spots for people to view.
Rocky and Yukon are two American mountain lions also known as cougars or pumas. They were listed as surplus (unwanted) animals in a German. When we saw the Pumas the first time we were struck by Rocky's protectiveness over Yukon. Our biggest fear was that the two Pumas would be sold and separated, so we decided to bring them both to Jukani. They are still inseparable.........even eating together from a single piece of meat.
