When he kept putting his hands all over the ligers face was scary. It looked pissed.

The guy has gots, if something that HUGE started to look annoyed, I don`t think I could just pat it on the head with a "good boy" and go back to talking. I`ve seen pics of ligers before, but before that I thought they were just a made up animal name on Zoids.

Oh, point of interest: The males are sterile, the females can breed.

In both cases this is "usually", so it`s conceiveable you could find a fertile male and female, but the odds are pretty slim.

We have a small private zoo here in the mid-west that has a litter of Ligers every year. I have yet to see one grow to that enormous size. They do get larger than either parent, but not nearly as big as the one in the video. Must be a mutant.

They *ARE* natural, they can occur in the wild, they just don`t happen often because it`s rare a lion and tiger would meet let alone mate.

They don`t thrive because like many other hybrids, they`re mostly sterile. (Like Mules, another "unnatural" animal). They`re perfectly capable otherwise.

it`s pitiful how many people have spent so much time on here for so long to complain over and over again about reposts. that`s probably a jab at myself as well but i`ve never had high self esteem =D

Grossen: There`s only one place where lions and tigers both live in the wild, and then only just. It`s a forest area in India and neither animal is common there. Lions and tigers do both live wild in India, but India is a big place. They rarely meet and are likely to fight or walk away when they do. There are local stories about massive cats in the area, though.

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.

Beautiful creatures.

On a side note, anyone who liked the movie Napoleon Dynamite, you really should watch the New Zealand movie "Eagle vs Shark".

shagthefag;
Zoids. I loved that show.

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...
