They may look familiar but these big cats are extremely unique and rare.

This big cat mother recently gave birth to three adorable liliger cubs at a zoo in Novosibirsk, Russia.

Although the mother and her cubs look like tigers, she is in fact a lion-tiger hybrid known as a liger - the biggest known cat in the world.

I live in a small Idaho town. A few years ago, in an even smaller neighboring town, there was a lady that was breeding ligers, as well as hybrid wolves. To make a long story short, the ligers escaped the compound and were running wild. Big, scary animals.

But the babies look lovable!

Wow, what a beautiful mottle their fur has! I hope they will turn out fine and we'll see them in all their glory. I am also pleased to see that the mother, despite being and abnormality, seems to have normal motherly instincts. :)
