I remember the first time I heard the word, "Liger". I was watching Napoleon Dynamite when he mentioned his favourite animal was a Liger, half lion and half tiger. I laughed and thought, "As if! Of course that's a made-up animal". Well guess what, I was wrong. I can't believe I'm saying this but Ligers are real. I know this seems absurd but hold on to your butts.
Liger, Liger, Liger
Ligers are the hybrid product of a male lion and a female tiger breeding. This wouldn't normally happen in the wild however it can happen in captivity.
Interestingly, Ligers are the largest cat in the world. Their size may be due to genes present in the female tiger that aren't normally expressed with a tiger mate. These cats can grow over 900 pounds! That's a giant cat!
Conversely there is a cat called a Tiglon, the product of a male tiger and female lion. However that combination is rare and unfortunately sterile.
I was contemplating what to write today and thought about many subjects until I realized that Mondays shouldn't be bogged down with anything too serious. So I've decided to share a few funny and interesting videos.
On the Eighth Day of Christmas,
My blogger gave to me
Artemis, the hunter is always on the prowl. Be it rodent, insect or fowl. Even in his dreams he's chasing something fast. Stalking and catching any animal to cross his path. Maybe Dasher, Donner, Dancer, Prancer, Comet, Cupid, Vixen or Blitzen. Agile and clever, cute and shy, he's exactly my kind of guy. He'll nap on my bed, the couch or my lap. I love Artemis, he's the best.
