so today at work I met a lady who says she was the first person to breed a lion and a tiger to create a liger. and now she has a few ligers and tigons. She said that her and a group of people are trying to breed them to prove that back when the earth was still in its for of Pangea that there was only on breed of cat, the Saber tooth annd that when the continents broke up is when the evolution of cats bagan. So they breed them over and over to see if they can reach the Saber tooth level again.
She said they dont have visitors very often, but.. im googling this stuff.
I WILL VISIT THESE TIGONS AND LIGERS!
AND BEARS TOO!
Im not sure how much of what she said is true, but it is interesting. She said they’ve breeded the stripes off tigers and have managed to get some stripes on lions.
I dont agreed with breeding to “see what happens” or to “see oif we can” but it is an interesting thought.
