Did anyone see this on the news this weekend? I thought it was rather funny.

Looks like Napolean Dynamite's fictional animal really exists: A Liger, half lion, half tiger.


Liger news

They are bred for their magical powers

It uses genetic donors of the opposite sex (than a Liger).



And is very small. The opposite of the Liger.

I saw that on my hometown news program. Its twice the size of a male lion.

I believe that some have been found in the wild, no ones sure HOW but they have.

I believe that they are lying, tigers and lions live on different continents. unless someone's pet got loose and started boning the locals

At maturity they can reach 12 feet in length and weight about 1,250 lbs.

Man I just wasted 25 minutes at work reading about Tigons, Ligers, and LepJags.
Crazy how that genetic code works.

Those guys in the fruit suits used to put on shows at a local fair a couple times.

Probably the same one, given your location.

Pretty much my favorite animal.

I as well have seen a Liger at the King Richard's Fair in Carver, MA. very impressive, super huge, almost scary being so close with just some fruitcup in tights holding by a huge chain around it's neck.

and Im guessing you havent seen napolean Dynomite
Link Posted: 1/23/2006 1:08:51 PM EDT
reminds me of the Jackalope.
Link Posted: 1/23/2006 1:14:39 PM EDT
Yup...they're real. Bhagavan animal shows comes to the Medieval Faire here in Southeast Mass every year. They've got Ligers, Tigons, Ti-Ti's and Li-Li's (Ti-Tis and Li Li's are offspring of a Liger or a Tigon). Pretty cool, but I doubt it could happen in the wild.



Now that's a big kitty.

True story: A few years back (could be 10 now) we had one running around here in MI. For months. Someone had one and then just set it free. Then suddenly the sightings (there was video of it too) just stopped.

Going theory was that the powers that be had killed or trapped/killed it and wanted to keep it under wraps.

But yeah, they're pretty much my favorite animal.
