Is it illegal to own a liger?
Ligers only exist in captivity, and there has never been evidence that suggests that their habitat ever existed in the wild.
Though it is not illegal in some states to breed these hybrids, zoo policy expressly forbids this practice-even though a liger may sometimes be conceived by accident.
Can I buy a liger?
The answer is yes and in fact many people all around the world have ligers as their pets. North America, South America, Asia, Africa, Europe and even Australia all the continents have ligers and people have them as their pets.
How much do ligers eat?
Usually the zoo keepers give ligers about 20 to 25 pounds of meat a day. But a liger wouldn’t mind eating more than 100 pounds on a one single day.
How much do lions cost?
Prices for lions range from 5,000 USD for an adolescent lioness, to a whooping 140,000 USD for a rare white lion cub. Keep in mind also that the setup cost for owning a lion is over $100,000.00 and the annual care is over $10,000.00. That’s if you have no emergencies and no one gets hurt and sues you for millions.
