A lion and tiger together give life to babies. It is an amazing story to hear that a lion and tiger reproduce. Both of them are white. There are only a few white lions and white tigers living on the planet. The available data tells that there are only 300 white lions and 1200 white tigers in the white. The story comes from South California.
The white lion named Ivory and a white tiger named Saraswati to give birth to 4 ligers. Ligers mean lion-tiger hybrids who are very rare. You will find only 1000 of them all around the world. The names of the liger brothers are Yeti, Odlin, Sampson, and Apolo. Among the rare ligers, these four brothers are considered the rarest. They are the first-ever-born white ligers. Now, they are living in the T.I.G.E.R Sanctuary in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Ivory and Saraswati have given birth to lingers even before these four cubs. You may have heard about Hercules who is the biggest cat in the world according to the Guinness Book of world records. He is also a hybrid cub that was born in the T.I.G.E.R Sanctuary. Though Hercules is a giant compared to cubs, he loves to play with handlers and nephews. The little cubs will also grow in size similar to Hercules. The founder of T.I.G.E.R sanctuary, Dr. Antle says that cubs are gaining about a pound of weight per day. So they will soon increase in weight and height.
The four ligers have a mix of abilities of their mother and father. They can swim like tigers and are sociable like lions. Four of them have unique features too. Apollo is the smallest one that behaves like a house cat. The other little one’s curls around him to play. Yeti wants to get the attention of others. He is the biggest among the four cats. Dr. Antle believes Yeti will grow bigger than Hercules.
The four ligers might be at least 10 feet tall and weigh around 750 pounds when, they are two years. Even it is hard to imagine that these animals grow that much bigger within two years. We shall wait till these adorable cubs become fearful animals in the future.
