So if you breed this thing with a lion the offspring will be a lililiger? Yeah, uh, no.

The genetics get intriguing. Ligers are so damn BIG because they lack the "You can stop growing anytime now" gene sequence.
Tigons, on the other hand don't get anywhere near as farking humongous large.

Wonder if Kiara's lion father will provide the necessary DNA for a more normal size?
Also curious as to what would have resulted if papa had been a tiger (rather than a lion)?

(Apply same wonderings to tigon X lion and tigon X tiger).

At least it proves one thing...that ligers aren't mules. 
And that ugly-ass baby liligers can assplode your head with cuteness.

As I understand it (proving nothing, I saw it on an Animal Planet special), male ligers aren't actually sterile, but they never reach puberty. Same reason they don't grow manes although they have the genes to do it. So I suppose a female liger like this kitty's mommy could have a working uterus. Note that according to the article, mama liger didn't have enough milk for ONE kitty, which seems to indicate her ladybits are not entirely functional.

Tigons however are dwarf cats as opposed to Ligers which are giants, IF I understand the genetics of both, this cat should take aftr its Liger father in size. Apparently the gene turning off a tiger or lion's growth comes from the mother in Tigers and fathers in lions. Thus a tigon gets two copies of the gene and turns into a dwarf, the liger gets neither and becomes a giant, (but , bummer for it, also never reaches sexual maturity, which is why they can't breed)

From TFA:

The practice of breeding hybrid cats, such as Bengal Cats and Stone Cougars, has been criticized in the past as being "irresponsible" and potentially dangerous, especially when the animals are kept as pets.

Now, I have no clue what a Stone Cougar is, but I fail to see what is "irresponsible", let alone dangerous, about Bengals. I happen to have one. Pedigreed, even. He's a cat; just a cat with spots. He's a particularly mellow, laid-back cat. Bengals all are, because the breed standard requires a totally non-aggressive personality. I've had cats since I was 12, and Caesar is by far the mellowest, friendliest cat I've ever owned, or even known. Yeah, his great-great-great-grandkitty was a wildcat. Prionailurus bengalensis if you're keeping notes, which is one of the innumerable speices of housecat-sized wild cats. But he isn't; he's less of a wild cat than I am a Native American.

The kitteh in question:

i241.photobucket.com

He found a basket and, being a cat, naturally occupied it. Thankfully, he has a much better understanding of his own dimensions than my former cat, who left a trail of burst bags and ruptured boxes in his wake.

Bengals are cats. Just ... cats. And a lot less "wild" than your typical barn cat.
