It's pretty much my favorite animal. It's like a lion and a tiger mixed... bred for its skills in magic.

It's pretty much my favorite animal. It's like a lion and a tiger mixed... bred for its skills in magic. Unfortunately the animal is not really magical. The Liger is a product of two animals that would NEVER mate in nature. It would be like you being forced to mate with a chimpanzee. It's not by choice and should never have happened.

It's not by choice and should never have happened. Interesting idea. I mena not breeding humans with chimpanzee, (although there have been some wild parties ) but say we genetically mix some chimp and human DNA and we got some hairy offspring, with some cognitive skills that surpass chimps, but still not quite human either. Would we consider such chimera to be sane person and enjoy civil rights or should that abdonin... [More]

If the product of such a union ever exists, he/she should be given the opportunity to exist as humans in the society he/she so chooses. If the being is able to live amongst the rest of the community without hurting anyone there is no reason it should ever be condemned. Fair answer, but this definition "able to live amongst rest of community is a bit vague" For sake of debate, say that such creatures are genetically engineered for specific purpose. Say to preform important work in certain conditions that are not suited for humans. So lets assume such creatures have enhancend physical attributes... [More]

Fair answer, but this definition "able to live amongst rest of community is a bit vague" For sake of debate, say that such creatures are genetically engineered for specific purpose. Say to preform important work in certain conditions that are not suited for humans. So lets assume such creatures have enhancend physical attributes, yet decreased mental attributes, but just enough to be able to be selfaware and to be able to learn that job. Would you say that such creature should have rights beyond its engineered purpose, just because it is self aware? Where the line is drawn between rights of cr... [More]

Vague, yes, because there is no way for me to cover every extenuating circumstance in this hypothetical situation. There are too many shades of grey. But, in general, if such a creature were created by mankind and not nature then, yes, we are obligated to ensure it is offered as many perks of it's society as it is able to handle. If he/she is not able to live as human in any respect then it should be cared for by the society that created it and given all that it requires. It's not simply because the creature is 'self aware' but also because it would be a product of deliberate action, by design... [More]

What happened to the clip? The clip is still there, I've just watched it again. Perhaps it's blocked in your country or something.

A Li-Liger has been born now. Lion father and Liger mother. And I just found this, a Ti-Liger:

Unfortunately the animal is not really magical. The Liger is a product of two animals that would NEVER mate in nature. It would be like you being forced to mate with a chimpanzee. It's not by choice and should never have happened. It's possible a lion and tiger might mate in the wild, just extremely unlikely. Other animals of similar type have been know to mate in the wild. And lions and tigers both exist in India.
