Hello! My name is Phoenix
Phoenix is estimated to be 8 - 10 years old. He suffered burns to face leaving some scarring to his snout area. He often exhales loudly with his mouth slightly open, leading people to believe he is hissing. This is due to his scarring. He is somewhat reactive when he is in shed but otherwise quite nice to handle. He won't eat while in shed and has occasionally gone on hunger strikes for 2-3 months at a time. When he eats, he is choosy, he will only eat f/t small dark rats. They must be dark.
