Do Tigons exist in the wild?
Ligers and tigons do not occur naturally in the wild. This is because lions and tigers are not in the same geographical location and because mating would result in a diminished fitness of their offspring.
How many ligers exist?
Can ligers have babies?
Ligers and tigons are hybrids, the offspring of the pairing of a lion and a tiger. Ligers have lion fathers and tiger mothers. They usually grow much larger than their parents, and female ligers (sometimes called ligresses) can sometimes have babies.
Why can’t ligers live in the wild?
NATIVE LOCATION/HABITAT: Ligers don’t occur in the wild because tigers are mainly found in Asia and lions are mainly in Africa; these two species do not cross paths in the wild. Ligers live in zoos, sanctuaries, and with private owners.
