MOVIE IS HILAROUS!!!!!!!!!! check this some liger info
Tigers and cave lions in the wild in North America
By Der Voron, author of book Starcraft
Tigers are nice and attractive animals, and it could be possible to introduce them in the wild of North America. I believe there wouldn’t be problems with this:
First, tigers, as scientific explorations showed, are originally from the North, and the cold continental climate is their natural habitat. The tigers that live in South Manchuria (in China), Bengal (India), Sumatra, etc) migrated there from the North Eurasia. The original tiger type is represented in Siberian tiger subspecies, with its warm coat and ability to live in the Siberian continental climate. Thus, introducing wild Siberian tigers into the Northern United States and Canada could be possible. Bengal and other south subspecies could perhaps be introduced into some Southern United States and the South America.
Second, as for the danger that they may present: Tigers are not stronger than grizzlies, nor more agressive, and therefore will not present a danger bigger than do grizzlies, to forest and national parks visitors.
Also it could be possible to introduce the cave lion. We are well-aware that this animal is a species that became extinct in the North America about 10,000 years ago. The cave lion was about 1/3 bigger than the modern lion so it could be possible to replace it with the liger, the modern world's biggest cat, which is the offspring of a male lion and a female tiger, named after the combination of their names: li(on)+(ti)ger. It is bigger and stronger than either of it’s parents, has the length of up to 14-15 feet, with the tail, the weight of 1,000-1,100 and up to 1,400 pounds –- especially males. For comparison, a male Amur tiger, the largest naturally occurring wild cat, weighs on average between 400 and 600 pounds, with the maximum weight recorded about 900 pounds. Nonetheless, the liger is able to reach the same speed as it’s parents: up to 50 miles per hour at short distances, and it walks as silently as they do.
Ligers might be the biggest cats that ever existed. Encyclopaedic data for fossil cats—saber-toothed Smilodon, including the biggest of Smilodons, Smilodon populator; Homotherium, Dinofelis, Metailurus, Megantereon, Machairodont, others, and their ancestor Pseudaelurus—show that these cats were not as big as ligers. Thus, the liger could be called the cave lion of our days.
Ligers roar like lions and chuff like tigers, but not always: some ligers can only roar. Some of male ligers have leonine manes, which are more modest than those of the lions
