Napoleon dynamite was right! Captive bred lion and tiger mix. Due to their size, ligers would never succeed in the wild. They are over 500 lbs, with a much larger bone structure, which makes them clumsy and easily tired.
Beautiful tiger but I wish photographers would stop photoshopping big cats' eyes to shocking blue! None of the big cats have blue eyes. The closest to blue is the Snow Leopard whose gray tawny eyes sometimes show a little blue green.
