Most ligers suffer from a condition called Giganticism where they grow to over a 1,000 lbs in the first couple years of life.
Since it is un natural for lions and tigers to cross breed (being that they are typically not on the same continent) the cubs are usually too large for the mother to deliver without a c-section and they die very young from a multitude of birth defects and due to the rapid growth.
Freckles only weighs about the same as a lion and Read More

Rescued 5/18/07 Died 10/11/13
Bella is very quite and reserved. She spent her first few days in her new enclosure in her den. She had never had a den before, so the dark secluded area was quite appealing. Bella was spayed shortly after her arrival, so that she and TJ can live together again. They were a breeding pair at Savage Kingdom. Bella has turned around since her arrival and is quickly becoming a favorite among volunteers and guests alike.
