Liger Couple

What is a liger, you ask? It is the result of mating a male lion with a female tiger. They are said to have the strength of a lion and the speed of a tiger. The liger is the biggest of the "big cats" and is one of the most beautiful big cats in existence. I was fortunate enough to see a female liger at the GW Exotic Animal Park, in Davis, Oklahoma. They are truly beautiful big cats! I was enough lucky (or unlucky) enough to see her mate with a male lion. That was totally unexpected and a little awkward, but something that is rarely seem by most people. I did take some pictures that day, but unfortunately, she stayed up very close to the fence that was between us and the pictures were not publish worthy.
