Sadly ligers are inhumanely bred, and they are often born with birth defects like the white tiger and almost always die young. Also, nether the white tiger nor the liger are wild animals, they have to be bred in captivity, and white tigers have to be inbred in order to keep their white coat. I would have to agree that they are beautiful creatures but I just thought you should know about their background. I love the ligers pose in this picture, and overall it is truly amazing. Keep up the good work! You can read more about ligers and white tigers here: bigcatrescue.org/liger-facts/ and bigcatrescue.org/abuse-issues/…
Also most of the time they don't have to breed a mother white tiger to son or brother to sister, father to daughter or whatever. Any typical white tiger will keep the gene going. The only downside being the one that are in captivity ARE related. People are just dumb.
i read somewhere, or, heard, aren't ligers sterile? O: which sucks because i wish we had more ligers in the world lol i really like this, you're so great with big cat anatomy that i am pretty jealous loololol
They are REALLY big. lol, The largest one known is Titan, he's ten feet tall and weighs over 900 lbs. I really want to just cuddle up to one. Except for the fact that it would probably gnaw my face off.
since i was little me and my bro would play cats and we'd always be "mixes" of animals. and i always liked the idea of mixing two titans of the cat world, lions and tigers. so i've kinda always had them in my mind (even before napoleon dynammite), but i fell more in love with them when i had internet access.
saddens me though that most people only know them from that stupid dynamite movie ><
Yes. I agree, I haven't seen the movie but I have heard of it. I found out about Ligers through my own research. See, I love tigers. As you probably know. XD ( TigerWhisperer ) And I also love lions. I used to research big cats a lot on the internet and in books and I used to draw them when I was little. Then I was surfing the internet a few years ago or something and I came across the Liger. Although I never knew when they came into the world. Apart from they were a mix between a lion and tiger. <3 c:
