Liger

The liger is a hybrid cross between a male lion (Panthera leo) and a female tiger (Panthera tigris). The liger has parents in the same genus but of different species. The liger is distinct from the similar hybrid tigon, and is the largest of all known extant felines. They enjoy swimming, which is a characteristic of tigers, and are very sociable like lions. Notably, ligers typically grow larger than either parent species, unlike tigons.

I found it interesting that there are more hybrid animals. The liger is huge. I thought that the grizzly bear and polar bear hybrid was awesome.

I never knew there were ligers near me! A liger is a hybrid cross between a lion and a tiger. I'm going to see them at the two "Preservation Stations" in Myrtle Beach, SC.

The largest of all big cats in the world, the liger is the uniquely beautiful result of crossing a male lion and female tiger. Ligers are giants because of "hybrid vigor", in which they gain the strengths and attributes of both parents.

So, Liger Town was great unless you look at the animal negligence that occurred. Maybe someday we could try again, except with less misconduct and animal escapes?
