The Resume

    (1953-January 26, 2002)
    Died at 48 years old
    Given to the Kabul Zoo (in Afghanistan) as a gift from Germany (1964)
    Named after the precious stone valued by Afghans

Why he might be annoying:

    He enjoyed eating rats, mice, goats and rabbits.
    He was almost toothless (redneck bastard!).
    He didn't live to see peace in Afghanistan.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He demonstrated his anti-terrorism by killing and eating a Taliban fighter who climbed into his enclosure to prove himself brave.
    The fighter's brother came back the next day and threw a grenade at Marjon, taking out his eye.
    He often starved during war.
    He died from kidney and liver failure (connected with old age).
    Many people shed tears from the news of his death.
