Nowadays, thanks to the advance of biological technology, scientists are developing more and more hybrid cats, which are defined as the offspring resulting from cross-breeding of different animals. Let’s enjoy some photos of funny hybrid animals:
The Leopon is the result of breeding a male leopard with a female lion. The head of the animal is similar to that of a lion while the rest of the body is similiar to leopards. The most successful breeding program was at the Koshien Hanshin Park in Nishinomiya City, Japan. Leopons are also larger than leopards and likes to climb and enjoy water.
Ligers are crossbreeds between a male lion while Tigons are crossbreeds between a male tiger and a female lion. Ligers are the world’s largest cats. On the other hand, Tigons are usually smaller than either of their parents. Male Ligers or Tigons are sterile while the females are often fertile.
