The liger is a hybrid cross between a male lion and a female tiger. Thus, the liger has parents of the same genus but of different species. Ligers exist only in captivity or zoos because the habitats of the parental species do not overlap in the wild. The liger is often believed to represent the largest known cat in the world. Ligers have a tiger-like striped pattern that is very faint upon a lionesses tawny background.
Wow! How cute and adorable little cubs are they! These four cubs are born from a white male lion and white female tigress at Myrtle Beach Safari in South Carolina. Yeti, Odlin, Sampson and Apollo are the world’s most unique cats.
There are only around 300 white lions and 1,200 white tigers left in the world, so the cubs’ father, Ivory and mother, Saraswati, are extremely rare in their own right.
