The Arizona Sonora Desert Museum is actually much more what most would call a zoo rather than a museum. Most of the exhibits are in very large open enclosures. The Mountain Lion (aka Puma) exhibit is only one example. In this exhibit the very much alive puma can usually be seen looking out from one corner of the cave as in this photo.

Right you are - I remember seeing the polar bear news. Once, years ago while I was in Florida, I read about an alligator muching on a small child's arm in Myakka River State Park. The parents sued the park. It turned out that the parents had given the child some food(titbit) in her hand and then said: Go give it to that friendly alligator. The child did. - I have been to that park and there were BIG warning signs all over the place about not going near the gators or feeding them.

Well, it could still be stuffed, couldn't it ? Some plump little tourist might have climbed into the enclosure to pet the nice kitty and become lunch. Remember that lady last year who climbed into the polar bear habitat at the Berlin Zoo because she wanted to 'make friends' with the bears ?

I actually first wrote here "You mean that's a stuffed puma?" and was about to click the 'say it' button but then started laughing and erased it because some bells began to ring about the place: Arizona Sonora Desert Museum is a natural history museum, botanical garden AND a zoo. The word 'museum' triggered the image of a stuffed animal. ;-)
