    Er? Mixing up threads, I think! I wonder if you made some odd zoological comments in someone's classification?

    I wonder what it would look like if the liger played with a ball of string. I've got to get one of these some day.

    Pity that Ligers are infertile

    I wonder how they would fare in the wild. They may be too expensive and inefficient. Apparently there is an instance in Africa of one isolated Tiger pack becoming very large, because they live in a habitat with lots of water, hence they must be powerful swimmers to catch their prey.

    Only the males are infertile. The females may or may not be fertile. They seem prone to cancer so I do not think that they would do that well in the wild. I think the cancer issue is related to the growth/hormone issue. There is information about their fertility in the links I posted. I agree that they would need an enormous abount of food to grow and sustain themselves in the wild.

    I think these species hybrids are often infertile... its part of the package. About the size, the film did comment on the biological mechanism itself , the switching off of the growth inhibiting (hormonal) chemistry . In humans we get 8 foot giants if the pituitary malfunctions - something similar I guess. Its not a good idea since other things go wrong - not least the capacity to reproduce. After all these cats are all related a bit further back in time. The original wolf(dog) was very big indeed & certainly something to avoid --Tolkien got that right too!. (I'll look for a picture)
