The Final Countdown

      Mystic Jungle is dedicated to the fight against extinction. We deal in facts, not emotion.  Emotion is what drives us to do what we do, but it is the facts that helps us make the most informed decisions in regards to the outcome of the situation. If we are sent something such as

The Day The Animals Cried

    I have written on this before, but this atrocity is one that merits attention once again. The Ohio Exotic Ban law is about to go into full effect as of January 1 2014. For the un-informed, one thinks this is a simple case of the closure of “road side zoo’s” and i

Where Where The Wild Things?

     I don’t want to have to ever utter those words. But with the way things are heading it is a real possibility. Everyone wants to jump on the BANwagon. Case after case of an exotic animal being sensationalized by the press (after all using the words, clawed, bit or chewed is

“Let Them Be Free” – Educating the uneducated

    If I have seen it once, I have seen it at least THOUSANDS of times. Someone sees a picture of a big cat in captivity, and they begin the chant of “They belong in the wild”, or “Let them be free”.   I have tried to be nice, but now the gloves are off. I am b

The After Effects Of Banning Exotics

     I feel no one has really thought through what will happen if an all out ban on exotics were to pass. I mean, really, seriously think about it.  I know people LOVE to think they are “helping” by signing that petition, or letter to your state legislator. After all, you

A Burning Leopard

    I have been involved with all species of animals at one point in my life or another. I am pretty much used to seeing the atrocities of mankind inflicted upon those that cannot speak for themselves. I really thought up until two years ago, that I had heard and seen it all. That was

Big Cat Conservation- Reality

I have done a lot of research. You have a lot of misinformation out there that is actually garnering animosity towards anyone that is working and striving for that ultimate goal of replenishing the native lands of these big cats with some of the gene pool from here in the United State

Line Sharing Is Important for Genetic Diversity

As everyone knows Mystic Jungle is committed to the conservation and preservation of the Asian Leopard.  In order to diversify the gene pool it is necessary to “line share” with other facilities. Our very own Sampson is on loan to Single Vision Inc to breed with the female

Save The Asian Leopard From Extinction

Fury is the cat that started the passion to fight for the Asian Leopard. The Leopard pound for pound is the strongest of the big cats. They can carry three times their body weight up a tree. They are among the most adept at tree climbing and do so to rest safely, or to eat. They are a
