What Is a Liger?

Liger Baby CatsThe liger is a large member of the cat family which results from the breeding of a male lion and a female tiger. This particular combination produces an offspring dominant lionistic features and recessive tiger features. If the opposite occurs, female lion and a male tiger, the results would produce a more tigeristic creature known as a tigon. Both hybrid cats are members of the genus Panthera. There is no scientific name assigned to this animal because of it’s human assisted ancestory.

A liger looks like a giant lion with muted stripes but like thier tiger ancestors, ligers like water and are good swimmers. This is against the nature of a lion but is one of the things which makes this creature special. It gets the best of both parents. That is not always the case though with crossbreeds. Sometimes the results go the other way and the animal gets the worst of both parents.

Enjoy the site, I hope you fall in love with the liger, even if you don’t agree with the science… remember it’s not the liger’s fault. Be sure to tweet or like the posts so your friends can learn about ligers.

I Need To Know What Ligers Eat

Liger PicAre ligers just like lions? What do they eat when in a zoo and how much do ligers eat?

I know that male ligers can’t reproduce and the same for tigons, but can the offspring of the females of those species do so?

Say a female liger mates with a lion, then those offspring mate again will the males eventually be fertile while still keeping their large size?

Where Do Ligers Live?

Can someone please tell me where ligers live? Are they only in zoos or do they also live in the wild? What kind of land do they like?

Whats The Diffrence Between A Tigon And A Liger?

i just think scientist are kinda stupid to make 2 kind of animals that both are a mix of a tiger and a lion

Do These Creatures Called Ligers Really Exist?

Yes, ligers are the offspring of a male lion and female tiger. The offspring of a male tiger and female lion is called a tigon. Ligers tend towards gigantism and are generally larger than either of their parents, whilst tigons are generally smaller or at least no larger than their parents. Like most hybrids, both are usually sterile, but occasionally a female will be fertile and can be bred back to a male lion or tiger, producing:

Lion + liger = li-liger
Lion + tigon = li-tigon
Tiger + liger = ti-liger
Tiger + tigon = ti-tigon

There is no record of fertile males, so you could never breed two ligers or two tigons together, or a liger with a tigon.

Respectable zoos frown on the breeding of hybrids such as ligers and tigons, as they have no value from a conservation point of view and are taking up space and resources that could be used to breed endangered species. They are basically freaks bred by unscrupulous zoos in order to make money out of people willing to pay to see them.

Today, there is very little chance of them occurring in the wild – tigers are found only in Asia, lions in Africa and the Gir Forest of India, where there are no tigers. Historically, the Asiatic subspecies of lion had a much greater range which overlapped with that of the tiger, so it is possible, though unlikely, that they may once have sometimes occurred in the wild.

Where Can I Get A Liger Stuffed Animal?

I really wanted to get one for my boyfriend for Christmas..but I’ve searched and searched online and I don’t think Liger stuffed animals exist because I have had no luck in finding anything. =(

Which is cooler a Leopon, liger, tigon, jaglion, tiguar, liard, tigard, dogla, leguar or jagupard?

Liger vs Tigon

There is a lot of talk on the internet about who would win in a battle between a liger and a tigon. I like to think they would be friends, but what do you think?

Leave a comment with your answer.

White Liger Cubs

In January of 2014 four kittens were born: Yeti, Odlin, Sampson and Apollo. They are the world’s first ever white ligers born in captivity. Which makes them the rarest big cats on the planet.

The cubs’ father is a white lion named Ivory and their mother is a white tiger named Saraswati. With roughly 300 white lions and 1,200 white tigers, the match is a memorable and rare event.

Found – Endangered Tiger Locked In House

It seems that some police officers searching a property in Guerrero, Mexico discovered an endangered Bengal Tiger locked in a house. The big cat was in good condition but most likely is illegally owned.
