Are ligers dangerous?
Ligers might seem to be more peaceful than lions or tigers, and even though they were bred in captivity, they are incredibly dangerous animals, not to be underestimated.
Do ligers exist in the wild?
Lions and tigers are separated by about seven million years of evolution. Ligers exist only in captivity because the habitats of the parental species do not overlap in the wild. There is no proof that ligers have ever existed in the wild.
Can ligers and Tigons mate?
Sometimes the females of both hybrid species (ligers and tigons) are not sterile, meaning they can reproduce. Usually, this is 50% of the time. These females are bred back to either a lion or a tiger to create another hybrid species.
