    That was my second thought...

    1) That's either a massive cat
    or
    2) That's a mini person

    Ligers grow to be bigger than either Lions or Tigers for some reason.

    I understand the potential cost barrier and efficiency loss - but I would think if you’re aware of a wild tiger presence that bike and motorcycle options are thrown out the window.

    Genomic Expression
    Lions live in prides led by several adult males. The lionesses mate with each of those males. Each male wants his offspring to be the ones to survive, but the female's genes want multiple offspring to survive. The father's genes promote size of the offspring to ensure that his offspring out-compete any other offspring in the womb at the same time. Genes from the female inhibit growth to ensure that as many offspring as possible survive and that they all have an equal chance. By contrast, tigers are largely solitary and a female on heat normally only mates with one male. There is no competition for space in the womb so the male tiger's genes do not need to promote larger offspring. There is therefore no need for the female to compensate, so the offspring's growth goes uninhibited.

    When a male lion mates with a tigress, his genes promote large offspring because lions are adapted to a competitive breeding strategy. The tigress does not inhibit the growth because she is adapted to a non-competitive strategy. Therefore the offspring (liger) grows larger and stronger than either parent because the effects do not cancel each other out. Ligers take several years to reach full adult size, but it is a myth that ligers never stop growing.

    When a male tiger mates with a lioness, his genes are not promoting large growth of the offspring because he is adapted to a non-competitive breeding strategy. However, the lioness is adapted to a competitive strategy and her genes inhibit the growth of the offspring. This uneven match means that the offspring (tigons) are often smaller and less robust than either parent.

    animal reunions are always awesome.

    Sometimes I forget which thread I'm in. I was thinking I was in the Nature is Scary thread and have to admit I was waiting for one of the lions to grab her and drag her away. Glad they didn't. ok 99% glad they didn't.

    It’s nice to see but I would not be comfortable at all in this situation even if I raised them. If one of them is having a bad day, your life is over.

    it's the pitbull argument. They might be the nicest dogs in the world 99.99% of the time. But in the case of that .01%, when they are having a bad day or something is just a little off, they are equipped to do serious damage.

    But yea, it's nice to see this happy reunion!

    I can't imagine coming across this thing in the woods. I'd probably curl up in the fetal position, piss myself, and hope for the best.
