Ligers and Tigons

Ligers are a cross between a male lion and a female tiger. Ligers are the largest of all curently alive felines. Tigons are very similar to ligers, except they are breed by a female lion and a male tiger. Tigons only get about as big as a female tiger. Ligers are more common than tigons.

Ligers and tigons only exist in captivity because tigers and lions do not live in the same areas in the wild and therefore, cannot breed.

Ligers eat about 30 to 40 pounds of food a day but could eat even more! They also drink about 4 liters of water in one day! It takes a lot to keep a Liger healthy.

Herecules is the biggest liger in existance, he is 900 pounds and 12 feet tall. In the photo below Hercules is standing stright up, taller than an entire story.
