The cougar twin brothers, Pisgah and Mitchell, celebrated their second birthday with a special enrichment "cake" and a special program for their guests!
Pisgah and Mitchell will continue to grow, possibly reaching nearly 150 pounds a piece!
Pisgah and Mitchell were orphaned in Oregon and flew all the way across the US to live at the WNC Nature Center, where they represented the Western Cougar. The Eastern Cougar, originally native to Southeast Appalachian, is extinct. Only two subspecies of the cougar remain - the Western and the Florida.
