That's just about my favorite animal.

/oh no, the sheep are quoting the overrated movie, etc. etc.

Anyway, it's bred for its skills in magic.
 
2005-04-25 04:50:54 PM
OK. We just rented that movie this past weekend, and it was pretty funny. I was afraid the hype would ruin it, but it was much unlike what I was expecting, and the Idaho State Legislature's resolution about it made it more amusing.

Rare & huge? Wouldn't that be "rage" or "ruge" or something as equally inane as "liger" for a lion/tiger mix?
 
2005-04-25 04:56:42 PM
Sweet!

So are the Ligers steril?

Nichole: So are the Ligers steril?


I was thinking that myself.
 
2005-04-25 05:04:27 PM
Does it have talons?
 
2005-04-25 05:06:40 PM
Gosh!

I was just having that conversation with someone at my work who I showed the article to.

Apparently, they are.
 
2005-04-25 05:17:41 PM
Then these people say that they CAN reproduce. **shrug** Who knows, man.
 
2005-04-25 05:19:40 PM
And these people say that male ligers are sterile but that females are often fertile.

weirdness.

We're freaks, crossbreeding animals that would not normally mate.
 
2005-04-25 05:21:05 PM
Gee, thanks for clearing that up for me the_pgoat ;)
 
2005-04-25 05:26:47 PM
hehehehe.

Yeah. That's exactly how I feel about the quality of the liger-related educational material available on the intarweb! bleh.

What other combinations of animals are possible?

Still waiting on the pigephant promised by a certain cartoon show...
 
2005-04-25 10:23:09 PM
Both Ligers and Tigons can be fertile.
 
2005-04-25 10:24:15 PM
mizike Does it have talons?



I don't understand a word you just said.

/baaaaaa

For Sale: Male Lion - Fertile and Can Open Cage Doors
 
2005-04-25 10:24:41 PM
I'd've called it a Tion.

"What other combinations of animals are possible?"

-Best line ever

the_pgoat

It seems to be common for female hybrids to be fertile, but not the males. That's been the case for cetacean hybrids.
 
2005-04-25 10:26:12 PM
Aren't they biologically fertile by having an odd number of chromozones? Or something?

/10th grade biology

GIS for "liger":



Ew.

Liger, please !

Other real hybrid animals

Wolphin whale/dolphin

Cama Llama/camel

Jaglion Jaguar/Lion


I found this link informative with pics of all the cross breeds

Now THAT's a Liger!

 
2005-04-25 10:33:16 PM
What about black humans and white humans? Is this possible?
 
2005-04-25 10:33:51 PM
Apparently, liger != tigon

Bob_Lawblaw: I'd've called it a Tion.

The standard way of naming a cross-species offspring is to place the male first, and the female second. So tion would imply that the parents were a male tiger, and a female lion. Although tion is an acceptable name, the offspring of that combo is more commonly known as a tigon.
 
2005-04-25 10:37:13 PM
I think it looks more like a Puma.

Tiglon. ;)
 
2005-04-25 10:37:40 PM
Wow. Looks like a really nice zoo.

Jushin "Thunder" Liger?
 
2005-04-25 10:42:03 PM
Wait...this is a joke right?
 
2005-04-25 10:43:20 PM
bounty - I read online that they come out grey.
 
2005-04-25 10:44:01 PM
After looking at ShootTheMoon's link, it doesn't seem beyond the relm of posibility that ancient peoples could have got their boogie on with neanderthals and produced offspring. I won't speculate as to the fertility of these potential offspring, but it seems possible to me.

I want one of these:

Damn.
 
2005-04-25 10:50:20 PM
FYI, ligers are bigger than both the tiger and the lion, while tigons are smaller than both the tiger and the lion. So the biggest cats on earth are ligers.
 
2005-04-25 10:51:49 PM
Good site about hybrid big cats:

the_pgoat: the Idaho State Legislature's resolution about it made it more amusing.

Thanks for the link. It made my day to see the words "FREAKIN' IDIOTS!" in a piece of legislation, and even more so to see them potentially directed at members of the Idaho state legislature.
 
2005-04-25 10:55:48 PM
Very cool.
 
2005-04-25 10:56:44 PM
That's nothing. You should see the elephapottamus they made in Kentucky.

So if you mated a liger and tigon, would you get a normal sized tiger or lion?

if you read that fast it sounds like poetry.
 
2005-04-25 10:59:13 PM


This was not the result of a scientific experiment, RIA Novosti quoted zoo director Rostislav Shilo as saying at the time. Its just that the lion and the tiger live in neighboring caves in the Novosibirsk zoo, and got used to each other. Its practically impossible in the wild.



um... heya baby..... girl
you so fine wid dem stripes an shiat
an girl....
aw baby, i buy you TWO baby pigs to munch on girl...
yeah.... yeah.... back dat furry ass up.....
