You’ve probably already heard or read about mythical hybrid creatures that existed in the past. Did you know that hybrid creatures still exist and that scientists are experimenting on new animal species every day? With the advancement in technology, scientists are now able to genetically create hybrid animals through a process called Somatic Hybridization. It should also be noted that hybrid animals are usually infertile and the continuation of the species is sorely reliant on scientific intervention.
10. The Liger
The more famous hybrid animal is the Liger, a crossbreed between a male lion and a female tiger. It seems scientists love breeding these two animals since there is also a Tigon, which is the crossbreed between a male tiger and a female lion. They possess beautiful brown and white stripes, with the male Liger boasting a mane just like a male adult lion. The Liger is the largest of all cats, with the largest recorded non-obese Liger weighing 401 Kgs.
