The Liger

The Liger - panthera leo x tigris, cat, tigon, liger, big cat crossbreed
Flag This WallpaperAdd to FavoritesEnlarge Wallpaper
Wallpaper Description:
A liger is the offspring of a lion and a tigress. It is bigger than either parent, 10 - 12 ft in length - making it the biggest hybrid cat and, for many people, the most fascinating. L Reisinger(1929) reported a male liger as weighing as much as both parents together.

Ligers vary in appearance depending on how the genes interact and on which subspecies of lion and tiger are bred together. According to AP Gray in Mammalian Hybrids, the basic colour of lion/tiger hybrids is pale ochre to rust yellow-brown, more intensive than in the lion, but paler than in the tiger and with tiger striping. The mane of the males develops late and is shorter than that of a lion. In general, males grow sparse leonine manes and the facial ruff of a tiger. Males and females have spotted bellies and a striped back. They roar like lions and "chuff" like tigers. The females exhibit conflicting needs for lioness-like sisterhood and tigress-like solitude. Ligers have no scientific name, but Panthera leo X tigris has been posited.

That is a hybrid animal, let's say a monstruosity artificially created by irresponsible men who like to play God. They are bigger, stronger and live longer than their parents lion and tiger. They are, so, more dangerous than lions or tigers. There some of those beasts that weight about 1300 lbs and eat about 85 lbs of meat a day. Al tigers they are lazy, uselees, expensive to bread, stinky animals, coward beasts, who pretend to be domesticated but can kill people. So, let's make forbidden their creation in America and let's kill all of them who stll live in that country
