Mischief and Stompy were born at The Centre in 2010 to Timone and Scratchy. Mischief definitely lives up to his name and loves to act all sweet and innocent until one of the guides tries to put their hand too close to him.
Stompy is the shy one and prefers to sit and watch the goings on before he joins in.
