Welcome back, today we will learn about ligers.

The liger is a hybrid offspring of a male lion and a female tiger. The liger has parents in the same genus but of different species. The liger is distinct from the similar hybrid called the tigon, and is the largest of all known extant felines. Though ligers typically have a life expectancy of between 13 and 18 years, they are occasionally known to live into their 20s. A ligress named Shasta was born at the Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City on 14 May 1948 and died in 1972 at age 24. Nook died in 2007, at 21 years old.Height-wise, an adult liger is typically about 4.5 ft tall at the shoulder and 6 ft tall at the tips of the ears when standing. To sustain such a large body, the liger requires an average of 25 lbs of meat per day—more than double the diet of a typical lion or tiger in captivity.A liger is bigger in size and weight as compared to a loin. A liger weighs around 900 pounds while a lion weighs around 500 pounds. Therefore; a liger weighs twice more than a lion and also it is twice bigger in size as compare to the lion.
