Liger Cubs Born: 'It's Pretty Much My Favorite Animal'

Monday, 23 May 2011 10:56 AM

The seemingly mythical creature made popular by ‘Napoleon Dynamite’ has made the news once again as Liger cubs were born in Shandong, China on May 13.
The Ligers, born at a wildlife reserve in eastern China, are the offspring of a Manchurian tiger and an African lion.
Four cubs were born, but only two survived — one male and one female. Their caretaker said the two cubs who didn’t make it weren’t healthy and died soon after birth.
A liger is the offspring of parents of the same genus, but a different species; a male lion and a female tiger.
Reportedly, there are only 20 ligers alive today.
