A baby female (Sasha) was rescued ten years ago, and a juvenile male (Guanay) 2 years ago. They get along very well and have been sharing a small enclosure. Time has come to provide a better place in the feline area.
Sasha and Guanay are two Margays that were rescued from people that kept them as pets. Guanay was kept in a cage so small he couldn’t stretch his legs. They have recovered well from their past and now get along very well. Learn more about this fascinating tree-born wildcat and about our two residents in our recently published Leopardus wiedii species fact file.
Sasha (female) and Guanay (male) were first put in small separate enclosures next to each other. Once they got used to each other’s presence, they were put into a larger, single enclosure. It is still not enough space for them, the enclosure they are in right now is too close to their potential prays. We need to build a larger enclosure in the feline area far away from other animals.
