There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Tiliger

The tiliger is a hybrid cross between a male tiger (Panthera tigris) and a ligress (which is the hybrid offspring of a male lion and female tiger). The world's first tiligers were born on 16 August 2007 at Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park in Wynnewood, Oklahoma.[citation needed]

Although male tigons and ligers are sterile, female hybrids can produce cubs. As with ligers, tiligers grow to a size that is typically larger than either of their tiger and lion fore
bears. Large males can grow up to 400 kg and 3.50 meters in length, while the females may grow up to 250 kg and 3 meters in length.

Well, at least we can see what it looks like if big cat is 400 kg. Comparing these hybrids to other big cats we can all make our estimations, if 400 kg tigers in past are realistic weights or exaggerations. It would be very interesting to see comparisons what comes to skulls and bones etc. I think, that some hybrids have died already in old age.

Perhaps too, if these captive cats were allowed proper exercise and fed on a healthy diet, we might learn of the physical capabilities of the huge Pleistocene cats of a similar size.
