A look at Ligars



This is a Ligar, its the product of a male lion (Panthera leo) and a tigress (Panthera tigris). Thus, it has parents with the same genus but of different species.
A Liger
It is bigger than either parent, 10 - 12 ft in length - making it the biggest hybrid cat. Ligers vary in appearance depending on how the genes interact and on which subspecies of lion and tiger are bred together. In general, males grow sparse leonine manes and the facial ruff of a tiger. Males and females have spotted bellies and a striped back. They roar like lions and "chuff" like tigers.
What a wonderful Creature
Ligers are the largest big cat, tending towards gigantism, especially in the males which can be the size of a pony and weigh over half a ton!
!! More Pictures after the break!!




Two Liger cubs sleep inside a private zoo in Tainan, Taiwan. The Zoo was in some possible trouble for cross breeding but I'm not sure how it turned out for the zoo.

Liger cubs
Seems some people spell it "Ligar" while others spell it "Liger"...Don't really matter I guess...but they are beautiful Animals.

Monster size

These things are truly beautiful and they are so big it's almost unreal. A rare animal that some think is not real but oh yes they are very real.
Thanks

  3. Yes and no - a liger can reproduce...well Female ligers are often fertile but male ligers are sterile ..So Females can while Males can't ..Kind of like Mules I guess.
