The Sphinx(VWM150)

The Sphinx

was born on February 13, 2010 in the Whiskers Mob. His mother was Ella the dominant female of the Whiskers at the time and his father was Thundercat. The Sphinx's litter-mates were Mr. Maz (VWM149), Bearslayer(VWM151), VWP152 and Rafiki(VWF153). All five pups survived their first four weeks and started foraging with the adults. While out foraging, VWP152 was predated. All four pups survived their first five months but sadly Mr. Maz  died in August 2010. The Sphinx and his remaining brother and sister survived through their first year. Sadly in March 2011 Rafiki disappeared after being evicted. The Sphinx started roving with the other males. In June Ella lost dominance and Enili became the new dominant female. The Sphinx's father Thundercat started to go roving with his sons but soon Thundercat disappared in mid 2012. The Sphinx remained in the group for two years before he finally disappeared in October 2012 after taking to roving.
