Great pics! You didn’t climb the fence did you? A tiger is a tiger!
And they were wild in the sight of God before ever sin entered the world.
Was there a Liger?
@Brad — Ha!! I get that but I’m thinking Dr. C doesn’t!!
PS: Vote For Pedro
Okay, clue me in.
A “Liger” is the name of an animal that was drawn by the lead character in Napoleon Dynamite — it’s a cross between a lion and a tiger — and Napoleon Dynamite is in my top 5 “must not see” movies of all time. Unfortunately, Mrs Chunk loves it.
About 40 seconds in you can see the Liger scene. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHDi_AnqwN4
And until today, I did not believe Napoleon. There is such a thing as a Liger: http://www.ligerfacts.org/
Apologies for my lowbrow movie reference.
No worries. I missed that one. No Ligers at the Wild Animal Park/SD Zoo Safari.
When I first heard of ligers and tigons on the “Today” Programme BBC Radio 4, they said that you can mate a male liger with a female tigon and the offspring is a lion, similarly if you mate a male tigon with a female liger, you get back a tiger. This was a joke (I didn’t check the date, was it April 1), and for a long time I assumed the whole thing was an April Fool. However, I now understand that not only are there ligers and tigons, but zonkeys and donkras (Unfortunately they are NOT called debras) as well.
Based on the post title I thought this was going to be a Federal Vision post…
Ligers are the offspring of a male lion and female tiger. And they are huge. http://youtu.be/JE8Z5Es-M0E
