If you or your friends are curious about whether or not a lion or tiger mate and if they did, what would the offspring looked like… Then, here’s the answer: Tigers and lions can mate and give birth to hybrids. “Liger” is the result of a successful mating between a male lion and a female tiger. And the result of a male tiger mating with a female Lion is “Tigon.”

And the real example was seen in the Rostov-on-Don region of southern Russia. They performed an extremely rare cross between a tiger and a lion. There are only 30 hybrids to date. So, this site is extremely rare.

Tsar, a two-month-old liger cub named after their parents, is the offspring of tigress Princess and lion Caesar, according to zoo director Erik Airapetyan.

They have lived together for a long time and know each other well. When the tigress was in heat, she didn’t have any other choice,” he said. Because the likelihood of a “ligre” being born is almost nil, this birth has brought much joy and happiness.

This species is distinguished by its beige fur, which is typical of lions, and its striped snout, which is similar to that of tigers. The milk of a goat, which is also found in the zoo, is usually fed to the little Tsar.

Until now, its size has not exceeded that of a cat, but experts predict that as an adult, it will outgrow its parents.
