Nothing new about ligers ukbob, they've occurred naturally in the wild and were documented first in the early 19th century.

Is a mule messing with nature? That's a cross between a horse and a donkey.

Big buggers though, aren't they?

I doubt if most people have heard of them, and that video is the first time I've ever seen one.

First time I've ever seen one, head & neck look absolutely massive. Easy to see how these magicians / tamers / keepers occasionally get mauled by big cats, not much of a chance against them if they're angry. Thanks for the link.

Yeah I've heard about those before. Showed the kids a picture of one a few years back and they thought it was cute!!!!

Male Lion is mated to a Female Tiger = Liger

Male Tiger is mated to a Female lion = Tigon

Liger's develop a form of gigantism and that is why they are so big but Tigon's are pretty regular size.

Here is a tigon:

I'm liking Nara's Avvy better though.

A fitting tribute to one of DW's best loved posters.
Sadly no longer with us as his nurse sadly neglected to increase his medication & he was alowed to post unsupervised.

We can only hope that Care in the Community manages to nurse him back to full health so that he can rejoin civilised society again in the near future :)
