Saw this while watching kids TV with my son. Thought it was intresting also a little scarey, I don't really agree with crossing two different species especially as they would never meet naturally. Anyway see what you think. http://www.foundatio...show4item3.html
It states that Siberian Tigers average between 400 and 600 pounds. They estimate that a liger that they have named Hobbs to weigh about twice that. All ligers are presumed to be born sterile. Not unusual for hybrids.

Thats what I call a big cat. :s01
I wouldn't be surprised if Genetic Engineering is used in the near future to cross other types of animals with each other.
I read an article recently about a team who managed to very slightly cross a spider with a goat - aimed at creating a goat that could produce milk that contained a special spider-web ingredient that could be used to make tough bullet-proof vests and the like. They called it the "Spidergoat".
Goodness knows what they're going to come up with next. :-/
Isn't there a theory that a pair of Liger's were responsible for the killings of 135 men in Kenya, Africa 1898? Supposedly they attacked human's due to an infected tooth, and human 'meat' was easier to eat...
