Species: Lion (Panthera leo) DOB: May 10, 2008 Sex: Female Arrival Date: September 18, 2020
Rescue Story: Ungowwa originally came from “Doc” Antle and was transferred to Tim Stark in 2008 when she was about five-months-old. Since both facilities offer hands-on interaction with big cats, there is a good chance she was used for cub-petting. Although Ungowwa and Glacier have lived together for an extended time, it is reported that they have not had any cubs together. Tigon hybrids are more rare than their liger counterparts.
More about Ungowwa: Ungowwa spends most of her time exploring her habitat or napping on her bench, and loves to play in the leaves during fall and winter months. She is very observant and enjoys watching her neighbors and our Staff.
