The Phoenix is a mythical bird that can be reborn, rising from its ashes. Phoenix the orangutan was named after it after escaping from a forest fire; her home was burnt to cinders yet she survived. Phoenix's mother managed to swing her to safety before a rain storm tamed the blaze, yet for a while little Phoenix couldn't breathe properly.
Phoenix's life has now started anew in the sanctuary of Necklace Jungle. Her singed fur has more or less been replaced with new fur and from the outside maybe it seems as if nothing had happened, but Phoenix is still scared of fire. As Phoenix is shy her guardian should be especially gentle-natured and help her to conquer her fear and in return, Phoenix will prove that you should never give up on life, even if the going gets tough.
