Are There Really Such Animals as Ligers and Tigons?

Ligers and Tigons are creatures that really do exist.

ligers and tigons are real

There are the cubs of rare crossings between lions and tigers.

If the father is a lion and the mother is a tigress, the cub is called a liger. If the father is a tiger and the mother is a lioness, the cub is called a tigon.

Because these crossings are so rare, there are less than a half-dozen of these creatures in captivity today.

  1. Mating a male African lion with female tiger either bengal or Siberian yields the Liger. Ligers are bigger than lions and tigers. They have skin stripes of tigers and body structure like that of the lion. Ligers are beautiful animals. They are powerful as well. For me they can exist in the wild as well because of their power. In African Svannah only the powerful survives, this power feature exactly favors the ligers….

    Thankyou :)
