Where are Tigons found?

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.

Can Tigons reproduce?

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.
