What is the difference between a liger and a tigon?
A Liger is the result of a male Lion breeding with a female Tiger. So i assume that a Tigon the result of a male Tiger breeding with a female lion.
Ligers grow to lenths over 10 feet, tigons get large muscle mass.
yes it can. it would be called a ti-liger if the tigon was a boy and the liger a girl. search google and go to liger and tigon info to find out more.
a Tigon is the result of breeding a male tiger with a female lion, while a Liger is the result of a male lion and a female tiger being bred. Ligers are the largest feline in the world but are unable to produce offspring so are not an actual feline.
a liger. it is actually the biggest cat on earth. go to liger and tigon info at google.com to find out more about it.
Yes, a Tigon or Liger is Sterile, Just like a Mule. Most Cross-species are sterile.
probably a liger since its bigger
yes they can. it would be called a white tigon if the tiger was the boy or a white liger if the lion was the boy.
the location of the liger is in binghamton new york come and visit
A liger or a tigon
a liton A liger can live anywhere a lion or tiger would live
An example is a liger ( male Lion + female Tiger = Liger ) and Tigon ( female lion + male Tiger = Tigon) Liger: The liger is a cat born from the breeding of a male lion and a female tiger. This combination produces an offspring with more lionistic features than if the reverse pairing had occurred. That would produce a more tigeristic creature known as a tigon. Both are members of genus Panthera.There… Read More
Ligers are much, much larger. For some reason switching the mother makes the Tigon a whole lot smaller, and seeing as animals don't know what they are doing the bigger one is going to win. A liger would win the fight, because the liger is the biggest cat in the world before the tigon and tiger.
Nearly all tigons and ligers are sterile, like most hybrids. Occasionally a female will be fertile, but males are always sterile, so you could almost never breed them. You can, however, breed a fertile female back to one of the parent species. In this case, you get: Tigon + tiger = ti-tigon Tigon + lion = li-tigon Liger + tiger = ti-liger Liger + lion = li-liger Hope this helped! : ) / T_T /… Read More
A mule is a cross between a horse and donkey. A Liger and a Tigon are both Lion/Tiger crosses.
Depending on which animal was the father, either a liger or a tigon. a liger
A Tigon Tigon is if the father is a tiger, if the father is a lion, it is called a liger.
Liger a male lion and female tiger Tigon a male tiger and female lion Titi a cross between a liger and tiger
The cross between a Tiger and a Lion. I think it is technically a Tiger (male) and a Lionness (female) that make that subspecies, though I may be thinking of a Liger. The Liger is a cross-breed between a MALE lion & a FEMALE tiger.
It is a cross breed between a male tiger and a female liger/tigon or a male lion with a female tigon/liger. Do note that female ligers or tigons are fertile. They are extremely rare and are in mostly private ownership within a behavioral studies programme. In the case of ti-ligers, they have unusual striping where it breaks up and display a blotchy appearance. Since they are 3/4 tiger, their characteristics inhibit more of those of… Read More
A Tigon is a hybrid cross between a male Tiger and a Lioness. A cross between a male Lion and a Tigress is called a Liger. Such hybrids only appear among cats kept in captivity, as the two species do not mix in the wild.
As a Tigon and a Liger are both crosses between a Tiger and a Lion you would expect them both to have the same diet as their parents, namely meat.
Pretty much. They are both Big cats and are the same family but, they cant breed here some web sites Tigon http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tigon Liger http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liger
in American big cat rescue sanctuaries.
Probably nothing, as the males tend to be sterile.
A male is called a Tigon, and a female is called a Liger.
Yes, and they will produce a liger or tigon (ligar if the father was a lion and tigress was the mother, and a tigon if the father was a tiger and mother was a lioness.)
Liger means that the lion genes are more dominant because the lion part of the name comes first (li), While tigon means the tiger genes are more dominant, as the tiger part comes first (tig).
Yes, there are Ligers. The Liger is a hybrid cross between a male lion and a female tiger. A similar hybrid, the offspring of a male tiger and a female lion is called a Tigon. See links for more information. Posted to you by cooie123.
The Liger is a cross-breed of a male lion and female tiger. Tigon is the name for the reverse. This is not a natural, in the wild ocurrence, but induced in captivity as an experiment.
The largest big cat is technically the Liger/Tigon. They are up to 12 feet high standing up. The genetic codes in the liger's DNA cause it to have a mutation that makes it very tall. Unfortunately, scientists do not consider the liger/tigon a species, because it is a hybrid between a lion and a tiger. If you are scientifically speaking, then the biggest cat would be the Siberian/Amur tiger.
liger, tigon, leotig, tiguar, tigard, jaguatiger, leotig
Male lion + female tiger = ligerMale tiger + female lion = tigon
Panther is a generic term and may be any of the following species: a lion - panthera leo a tiger - panthera tigris a leopard - panthera pardus a jaguar - panthera onca a snow leopard - panthera uncia. All are closely related genetically.
Sort of. You can make lions and tigers have a liger/tigon.
Like a tiger with faint stripes. A bit like a lion. A bit like a liger.
Ligers grow bigger than tigons and would most likely be stronger
False, if a male lion and female tiger than the result is a liger, but, if a female lion and a male tiger then the result we be a tion. Tigon is very close though
Yes, the result of a male lion and a tigress is called a liger, tiger and lioness is a tigon.
Crossbreed a male lion with a female tiger. A female lion/male tiger hybrid is known as a tigon.
The "Liger" is a hybrid that comes from a male lion mating with a female tiger. The result is not to be confused with the "Tigon", which is a somewhat different hybrid that comes from a female lion mating with a male tiger.
A liger is the offspring of a male lion and a female tiger. This should not be confused with a tigon, which is the offspring of a female lion and a male tiger.
a liger Actually, it's a tigon, or tiglon. Ligers are male lion/tigress hybirds.
There are two hybrids of a lion and a tiger 1. Liger - a hybrid cross between a male lion and a tigress (female tiger) 2. Tigon - a hybrid cross between a male tiger and a lioness (female lion)
Since a liger is a female tiger and a male lion. It would be simply bigger because a female tiger is larger then a male tiger, and the male lion is simply bigger then the female lion.
1.A wolfdog Liger and tigon, mule, and many insect species which weren't discriminating in partner choice.
a liger is a male lion and a female tiger or a tigon a male tiger and female lion
Not really, they are an unnatural hybridization. Men have bred lion fathers to tiger mothers(liger) or tiger fathers to lion mothers(tigon).
No! As of this date the Siberian Tiger, is the largest cat in the wild. In captivity, the hybrid called the Liger or Tigon, is the biggest cat in the world.
Tigons are the smaller of the lion/tiger hybrids (the other being a liger) and weigh in at about the size of the lighter parent - around 300lb.
Yes. The offspring of this mating is called a "tigon", or "tiglon." Male lion and tigress mating is called a "liger'.
Lions and Tigers have been known to breed in the wild. The Liger is the cross breed of a male lion and female tiger. The Tigon is cross breed of a male tiger and a female lion. While not common these do occur in the wild.
