Lion Tiger Hybrid Photos

December 4, 2011 by staff 

Lion Tiger Hybrid Photos, ITN News reports from Taiwan, where a male lion and female tigress have produced rare offspring. Only two of the cubs survived — known as ligers — and are being hand reared by zoo staff, as they have been rejected by their mother.

The private zoo where they were born says that the lion and tigress have been mating for three years, though no pregnancy has ever resulted. The animals have lived together since becoming comfortable around each other at a young age.

While the zoo insists the crossbreeding was unintentional, if authorities in Taiwan discover otherwise, the zoo may face fines for mixing rare and protected species.
