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

Monday, 23 May 2011 10:56 AM EDT

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.
