ABC Nightline - Featuring Hercules the Liger

Ligers are giants because of "hybrid vigor", in which they gain the strengths and attributes of both parents. Ligers live long, healthy lives, are very smart and show great resistance to illness and disease.

Ligers are incredibly social animals and are comfortable living with both lions and tigers. They also display genuine affection for their human handler's and trainers.

Contrary to popular belief, ligers are not a "man-made" creation. Similar to pizzlies (polar bear / grizzly bear hybrids) and wolphins (whale / dolphin hybrids), ligers have existed in the wild for thousands of years. Due to the recent decline in both lion and tiger populations, however, their territories no longer overlap.

While some people do not consider ligers as "zoologically significant", their true importance is in getting people's attention and helping to convey the importance of global biodiversity and conservation. Obviously it works. . . . . after all, you are watching the video and reading this statement.

Hercules is a really well-mannered cat. He's 900 lbs. But he won't maul you to death or eat you as long as you keep feeding him. He won't give you any trouble.

Don't go to Sea World. Don't give them your money. 

When I think about orcas living at Sea World I think about Palestinians living in israel.

It's the same kind of fucking deal.

"killer whale" was a misinterpretation. The original meaning was "Whale Killer", Cause they do kill whales.

You learn something new every day.

So yes, orcas aren't whales, they're really bad ass dolphins & if there wasn't any humans they would be the apex predators in the ocean even higher up the chain than the Great Whites.

For the record, killer whales aren't whales at all. Orcas are just really bad ass dolphins. They're in the same family as dolphins. They're cetaceans. And they're really smart.

Hybridization is a very important part about how evolution works. It's not the whole deal put it is a piece of the puzzle.

I love hybrids I got a cross between an African Serval & a domestic cat.. He's my best friend. When he dies I'm gonna be totally heart broken.

Then there's the tigons. Father tiger mother lion. They're dwarfs. Only a few hundred pounds. The ligers get really big cause there's a gene that is missing that would otherwise retain their size. I don't remember how it works exactly but I read an article about it a long time ago.
