Can Siberian and Bengal tigers mate?

Why lions and tigers belong to different species even though they can sometimes breed together?

Lions and tigers can interbreed because they have enough genetic similarities to allow it. Nevertheless, their chromosome counts do not match evenly. As a result, only one sex of offspring from the pairing is typically fertile (females are fertile, and males are sterile).

Can a lion and a tiger mate?

Tigons can have offspring that have manes (again if the offspring is male) but it is not as likely as a liger to have a mane.
