Transcript of Ligers
currently, there are no ligers
in the wild. All the ligers are in
captivity and their numbers
range from minimum of 10 to
maximum of 100 . According to Dr. Antle, there is a one in a billion chance in the wild that a tiger and a lion would mate. Tigers and lions are naturally big enemies of one another. If they will meet face to face, they will try to kill each other. Reason There Is No Wild Ligers: Ligers longevity: Ligers live for about 10 to 13 years.
This is true but a large amount of
ligers are older then the ones that
died younger because they contract
a disease or are over fed. The longest
lived liger, which is 24 years, is named Shasta. There are numerous reports of mothers rejecting her hybrid cubs all together. Two rejected cubs was nursed by a dog, who had a puppies of her own. Most of the liger's mother recieved
a C-section delivery, due to the size
of the cub. Newborn liger cubs tend to be
bigger than tiger and lion cubs. Jungle Island, an interactive animal theme park in Miami, is home to a liger named Hercules, the largest non-obese liger, who is recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest living cat on Earth, weighing over 904 lb. Hercules was featured on the Today Show, Good Morning America, Anderson Cooper 360, Inside Edition and in a Maxim article in 2005, when he was only 3 years old and already weighed 900 lb. Hercules is completely healthy and is expected to live a long life. The cat's breeding is said to have been a complete accident. The first liliger is named liliger The liliger is a hybrid cross between a male lion and a ligress. The first hybrid was born on September 2012 at the Novosibirsk Zoo, Russia. Kiara According to Dr. Antle, a liger in a single sitting is capable of eating more than 100 pounds of meat. But this might not be a healthy feed for a liger as it will make the liger fat and obese. Usually the zoo keepers give ligers about 20 to 25 pounds of meat a day. But a liger wouldn't mind eating more than 100 pounds on a one single day. This can also be dangerous as well, as in the many studies, many ligers died because of the over-feeding. What does Ligers eat ? Sources: -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liger
