What's a Liger?

Despite the fact that I work at a science museum, some things continue to surprise me. Today I learned that ligers are real. I never even heard of the things until I saw Napoleon Dynamite, and then, after Napoleon states that they are, "bred for their skills in magic" I assumed they were a made up animal. Not so. They're real.


A liger.: A liger, but what is a liger anyway?

Ligers are the result of a mating between a male lion and a female tiger. A tigon is the result of the mating of a male tiger and a female lion.

Ligers tend to be much larger than lions or tigers, weighing as much as 1,000 pounds. (Tigons, on the other hand tend to be smaller than lions or tigers.) Ligers have faint tiger stripes and are light brown to brownish orange in color. Male ligers sometimes develop modest manes. The pattern of stripes and the color can vary depending on what subspecies of lions and tigers were mated to produce the liger. Ligers are generally "laid back" but can exhibit behaviors from either parent. Most ligers have been found to be social, which is a trait of lions, and to enjoy playing in water, a behavior of tigers. However, since ligers are animals bred only in captivity it is hard to know what their true behavior in the wild would be. And since ligers and tigons are not animals that would occur naturally in the wild, as the ranges of the two animals do not overlap, their true behavior may never be known. You can learn more about big cat hybrids here.

When I thought ligers were fictional animals I thought they were cool - now I'm not so sure, and I don't really know why. Is it because this is an "unnatural" animal? An accredited zoo would never mix two different species. Some say that ligers exhibit signs of depression and confusion as they age because they experience conflicting behavior instincts, lions are social animals and tigers are solitary. What do you think? Should animals of different species be deliberately mated in captivity to produce hybrids? Ligers and tigons are just two examples - others include the Zorse (zebra/horse), mule or hinny (donkey/horse), Dzo (yak/cow), and the wolphin (whale/dolphin) just to name a few, there are many more.

Sadly these animals are not natural- they are the result of accidental breeding in a mixed species enclosure or are bred for their WOW value and then the animals are quickly tossed aside when they are too big to care for. A zoo that is accredited by the AZA- American Zoo and Aquarium Association, would never allow this breeding to take place as the offspring are genetic "junk" and could not be a part of a breeding program. Even interbreeding between subspecies-like an Amur and Bengal tiger is considered a hybrid and the animal would be worthless for a breeding program. There are two programs in AZA facilities TAG- Taxon Advisory Groups and SSP- Species Survual Plans- both are in place to ensure genetically strong individuals, something a hybrid isn't.

Hmmm. I'm not sure ligers would live longer in the wild than they do in captivity. I would tend to think that with the care and constant source of food they would live longer in a zoo than in the wild.

And I also don't think it is because of zoos that animals are becoming extinct - in fact, zoos are responsible for maintaining and growing populations of many species that are endangered. I'd recommend learning more about zoos buy visiting the Association of Zoos and Aquariums website. Animals become extinct because we hunt them or take away their habitat, not becuase they are all removed from the wild for display in zoos...

Seems to me that natural phenomena that divide one species into to geographically isolated regions are no more "legitimate" phenomena than humans placing them "unnaturally" together. Apparently, they are well-suited to their lives in captivity. Whether it is good for either species is a good (and unanswerable) question. Nature is what happens, and evolution doesn't give a hoot how you feel about it, whether you think is happy or sad, natural or unnatural. Nature is what happens, and people, responsible or otherwise, are a part of it. Who is to say that ligers and tigons shouldn't exist? One might take refuge in the argument that mixing species makes them less suited to their natural environments. This argument might hold sway in a world in which their natural environments were stable or protected. As it is, crossbreeding may very well prepare them for the future Earth: we simply don't know, and our guesses are not likely to be correct. As for their not being "genetically strong", one can see an argument that incompatible alleles might spell doom for the individual animal. However, the "accidental" recombination of alleles in diverse combinations is the stuff and essence of evolution, and certainly that is what has happened here. One wonders whether the natural ranges of lions and tigers would be so well-separated were it not for humans. There is a land bridge, is there not? Let's talk about it again in twenty thousand years. I wouldn't advocate intentional and random cross-breeding, but let's not have a cow over it.

Joe says:

I'm not sure I agree with your argument given that the two animals would never breed in the wild, so evolution and nature sort of don't factor in here. Man did this - nature never would have. And I think it is a good and legitimate argument to put the focus on maintaining existing species rather than creating new ones, However, what's done and done, and now this popular curiosity will likely keep popping up.

Zoos should not unnaturally crossbreed similar species. If this continues the consequences will be great. With no "use" for the offspring of such hybrids, they will be simply left aside in a solitary, depressed life.

Tigers and lions can typically have anywhere from 1-5 cubs at a time- although 2-3 is pretty average. The better question is: are Tigons or Ligers sterile like Mules? (the cross of a horse and a donkey?)\r\n

Well, Joe's answer says it best. There is lots of conflicting information. I can not find any definitive answer. Some people say that all ligers are presumed to be sterile with rare exceptions. While others say that ligers that can reproduce are quite common. Since the zoological community considers liger breeding unethical anyways, it is going to be hard to get a good scientific answer to this question.

But as an experiment I have gone ahead and posted a Yahoo Answers question to see if we can shine some light on this subject.

It is unatural and inexcusable to be executing such a process; Ligers have known to suffer from depression due to the internal conflict that is caused by the contradicting social habits of the lions and the tigers. No, thus far we have come across no consequence that directly affects us as humans for this type of breeding, however one would be wise to think that maybe interfering with the natural evolution will hurt us in the long run. Think of how the want for power has errupted in conflict and war in the past (civil war, WWII, etc). Now that we have obtained some controll over the natural fate of genetics and evolution, we will, as we always have, seek more and more until the point of catastrophe. Deliberately mixing opposing species also degrates us down to a new level. It proves how selfish we are to force these creatures into suffering for our own personal amusement and curiuosity.

Ligers are real. Shasta a female liger, was born in 1948 at the Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City, she lived to be 24 years old. She was then stuffed and was on display in the old feline house for years. I guess then at some point she was moved down to BYU, but she's back at the zoo, for special exhibit until sometime in August, to celebrate the zoo's 75th anniversary. She's a beautiful animal, as to whether hybrids should be breeded, I don't have too much of an opinion on the matter. I just always remember Shasta as a kid whenever we went to the zoo, and thought she was the coolest thing. I was born well after she died though. I went to the zoo just recently and saw her and was glad to see her back there, that's where she belongs.

To every naysayer here condemning the crossbreeding between lions and tigers, especially those calling the projects irresponsible and unethical, I ask, on what grounds? Someone show me one reasonable and conclusive study providing strong evidence that ligers (or tigons) suffer from "depression." Someone show me one instance of a liger being "tossed aside" or abused by an accredited zoo because its genes are "junk." Are you people also against generating mules because they are human-induced hybrids? Are you also offended by genetically modified bacteria? If so, you better stop eating. Guess where the high fructose corn syrup in just about everything you eat comes from. No, not ligers, but from bacteria that are the result of years of genetic engineering. Genetic hybridizations have been occuring - naturally and "unnaturally" - for literally thousands of years, since the dawn of agriculture, in both plants and animals. And most of the liger crossbreedings have occurred in vivo anyway (the old fashioned way as opposed to induced conception in a test tube)! You people groundlessly attacking crossbreeding and liger breeding projects are missing the bigger picture and completely ignoring the fact that it's this type of research that lubricates the gears of scientific history. While I think one can argue reasonably that perhaps this work should not be the responsibility of zoos, one cannot condemn the research in general as "unethical." Don't you understand the potential? A successful liger breeding project could completely change the way biologists understand phylogeny. The genetic and evolutionary implications are extraordinary! This type of work is even, once again, forcing biologists and taxonimists to rethink the biological species concept. As long as these types of projects are being conducted responsibly and funded privately (because if you don't agree with me it's not right that your hard-earned tax dollars should fund my interests), then this type of research should be absolutely encouraged.

Personally, I've allways thought of the liger, biggest feline on the planet, to be an amazing creature. I admit, it's got problems attached, but some people talk about their very existance as some sort of crime... I know that some ill reputed 'sanctuaries' try to promote hybrid crosses, and these places are usually illegally run and substandard to begin with, but stop persecuting the animals for what they came into the world as.it's not like having a hybrid child ruined the breeding potential of either of the parents.

Just look at the liger as an amazing fluke of nature, along with all the other types of hybrid big cats, and accept it as that.

If you're wondering what i mean, Conscider that lions can interbreed with leopards too, among other large cats.

I think ligers are cool... except for the fact that they are sterile. I also think that tigons are easier to be accepted... ???
But mostly if the outcome is a female because all the males are sterile. or so I've read.

Some of my friends dont believe that these precious creatures exist and they make fun of me because they cant find information about them.They call Napolean Dynamite and say Im filled with a bunch of whooooblahhhh. After all that I sit in my room and cry.Who ever call a liger a tigon should be banned from this website because liger is the best name and the only name for this spectacular inbred animal.

They are real but there is no such thing as a 100% Liger as the male is sterile, there will only be a 50% lion and 50% tiger (or whatever mix it is). They can be over a foot and a half taller at the shoulder than a Tiger and weigh 900lbs+.
Tigons exist and are smaller than both Lions and Tigers but are rarer.

Supposedly there are Jaglions (Jaguars and Lions) and Jaggers (Jaguars and Tigers).

Mostly in confinement. The ranges of lions and tigers do not overlap, especially today with habitats for these animals and their populations shrinking.

The Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), which is the accrediting organization for zoos and aquariums, frowns on the practice of mixing species. Keeping the two species separate has always been standard zoo procedure.

That said, the AZA does admit that ligers have been bred accidentally, and there are a few zoos that have them. Check out the web sites of the zoos in your area to see if any are near by.

Seamus's picture
Seamus says:

I'm writing a novel about ligers, and I wanted to fact-check some stuff here.

The basic plot of my novel is that a male liger escapes captivity (either a zoo, or a rich magician's living room, I haven't decided yet) and heads south, where there are fewer laws (anti-liger laws).

While on the lam, our liger observes people, and learns how to work simple technology, like cell phones and bullet-proof vests (this is key, and will come up later in the book).

Once he is confident that he has outwitted his pursuers, the liger (I think his name will be Seamus, or Sharp-tooth, unless you know of any more authentic liger names) goes about conquering things. Things like houses and cities. Sharp-tooth conquers things easily because he's just about the biggest predator on land (unless elephants sometimes eat people. Yes? No? I want to be sure about this).

Slowly (or quickly, I haven't decided yet) Seamus builds his empire, and begins to make a move on his former captors (specifically the magician, or zoo, but the whole United States too). This bit of conquering goes a little more slowly, because once you get out of the south people have their stuff together. But Sharp-tooth proceeds nonetheless.

At this point the government dispatches a totally sneaky and hardcore assassin (their best one) to get Seamus. This guy is like an ex-navy seal, who specializes in knife-fighting (think Stephen Segal in Under Siege). The assassin tracks the liger and is finally able to locate him by satellite triangulation of Seamus' cell phone (if this ever gets made into a movie, the phone can be product placement. I'm not above that sort of thing as long as it doesn't interfere with the story). Being a sneaky assassin, though, the guy attacks from behind, and throws a knife into Sharp-tooth's back. Sharp-tooth falls.

The assassin then approaches the body, seeking a trophy (here's another question - what part of the liger body is most valuable?) Just as the killer is about to chop off [whatever] Seamus bursts up and bites the dude! Because he was wearing a bullet proof vest (which I'd assume also stop knives)! The assassin totally freaks out and wets himself, or something, before Seamus eats his head.

Seamus then makes his way to the magician's home (it's a magician after all) and confronts him. There's an awesome tooth and fang vs magic battle (the film version will be spectacular), ending, of course, with Seamus coming out on top. Would a liger just kill his former captor, or would he keep him in a cage, do you think? Probably kill him, because then Sharp-tooth goes to live on a tropical island, full of sexy pumas and stuff... until a sequel!

Does that all seem reasonable? Are there any glaring issues? Are there anti-liger laws down south too?

I'll be sure to credit science buzz in my acknowledgments (probably just as S.B.)

Ligers are animals bred only in captivity and are not animals that would occur naturally in the wild, as the ranges of the two animals do not overlap. From your perspective, "God" never intended lions and tigers to mate. Only through man's intervention has this been possible. Do you still think the same way knowing this?

tough topic. my philosophy - golden rule: what would you think about breeding a human-dog[or any other animal] hyrid? yes i know it may not be possible[yet] but think of it that way.

on the other hand the "un-natural" cannot become natural if it is not introduced and frequentized[it's a word in my vocabs]. yes people are creating mix of two different species, but we can't really say that is a no no because in the future these two species may interbreed and create the hybrids themselves; then would we accept it and call it natural? or maybe it will never happen in the future too.

anyways, just keep in mind, if you are open to the breeding and creation of a total different species with two separate species, please be open to breeding outside of the human race; really it's not so different, we are all living animals/creatures.

*And doesn't this also apply to the fruits and veggies many of us are consuming now? aren't many of them genetically altered and created for certain color/flavor/smell/look. but they are so abundant now we just accept them as natural. next time you eat a corn or lettuce or orange[etc] think about if it's been genetically wired-especially corn.

so the real question is, how far will we allow/go?

What a beautiful animal is Liger. Powerful, Stronger, faster and even very popular among people. People just get stunned whenever, they heard that there is a big cat that is much bigger than actually lion or a tiger. Currently there are around 80 to 90 ligers in the world as of 2010. Lets see how there future looks like :).

Hi people, just wanna say ligers are awesome, even if they do serve no purpose for preserving their species. Which is the reason why we breed them, they're just amazing, their size and yet beauty and peaceful nature. Don't go hating on others who enjoy ligers, it's not there fault, just the American way, sadly.

I saw a liger on a documentary and it was huge!
They are so cute! When I grow up I want to be a some kind scientist and ligers could be a awesome thing to study if their still around and not extinct.
They only be able to live in captivity because you know how lions can run really fast? Well they can only maintain that speed speed for a few seconds but livers can tired out twice as fast so they could die out so they should not live in the wild only in captivity.
