"M" is for mountain lion~~ABC Wednesday 041509




This is a photo of Reno, one of the mountain lions at the Living Desert Reserve in Palm Desert, CA. Reno lived to an old age and died just last year. Isn't he magnificent? I used to love to walk by and watch his antics in the afternoon. He was in an enclosure with a female mountain lion and they didn't always get along! She was younger than he was and more energetic. Reno just wanted to be left alone! Sometimes when she pestered him, he would take it out on her and she frequently had "boo boo's". You can see the two lions playing in the bottom photo and Reno in the photo on top. ABC Wednesday for April 15, 2009.

They are beautiful, aren't they? Shame they didn't get along, but it makes life interesting doesn't it? Does the female have a new companion yet?

On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday this week! :)
