In both cases this is "usually", so it`s conceiveable you could find a fertile male and female, but the odds are pretty slim.
they are gorgeous though massive beasts :)
They don`t thrive because like many other hybrids, they`re mostly sterile. (Like Mules, another "unnatural" animal). They`re perfectly capable otherwise.
They get builkier than that, too. They can run (very fast - longer legs), swim and all the rest of it. I`m sure they could hunt. I`m not sure that they could survive in the wild, though, because their food requirements are so much greater than that of a tiger or lion.
They grow up to 12 feet long. Grab a tape measure and measure out 12 feet in your room, to get a good feel for it. It`s a stunning size for a cat.
I want one.
I saw this video a while ago, but its still fascinating. I doubt that an animal as big as a liger can hunt properly, though. It`s probably a good reason why we don`t see them in the wild (now, before you get your panties in a knot, lions live in India too. And guess what else lives in India? TIGERS!). Unfortunately, there may be no real way to tell. I`m just gathering this from the lack of muscle on the liger as compared to the tiger next to it. It probably has a tough time moving around...
