Donate to Liger and Big Cat Care

Big Cat Rescue is a non-profit group which is one of the world’s largest accredited sanctuaries for exotic cats. It is also a leading advocate in ending the abuse of captive big cats as well as saving wild cats from extinction. They also house, feed and love over 100 lions, tigers, bobcats, cougars, servals and other species of wild feline. Most of these have been abandoned, abused or grown out of the use the previous owner kept them for.

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. =(

Question about Ligers?

I had seen a comment on a video I had watched stating a Liger would easily overwhelm a Lion or a Tiger in a fight due to it’s massive size. I thought, however, I had read an article quite a while back and that said a Ligers size is actually a detriment in a fight because it wouldn’t be as fast or as aggressive (Because Male Ligers are sterile they have low testosterone and therefore are more docile) than the Lion or Tiger. Does anyone have any knowledge or ideas on the probable outcome?? Just curious. Thanks :-)

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

mine would be the most famous the liger
