BLACK BEARS sybils den
Welcome to Sybil's Den.  This site is meant for information purposes  on raising  pet exotics animals based on my experience.  There are care sheets for black bears, foxes, raccoons, emus, farm animals and domestic animals.   Also please find a very informative message board with a lot of great members.

For some of the species of animals I have or had information on, You will find their photo gallery.
This is Bart. He was s a Red-Golden Pheasant.

These type of birds have very beautiful colors. Their life span is about 5-6  years.  

In general they are not very friendly birds, but they are beautiful.

Bart the red-golden pheasant lived most his live alone.  I put a female in with him, but he killed it. I then tried a second female, he killed that one also.

He would kill any females I put in his pen, but if I put young turkeys or rabbits in with him, he did not bother them. In fact, he lived with a rabbit for a while and seemed to like the rabbit. 

Bart would start to molt around October  of every year.  His colors would fade, he would loose his long tail feather, but before spring, his colors would come back just as beautiful as in the summer... (Bart  died in 2001 )
