Good Fence Thursday.. Big Cat Habitat CATS

Tiger
These cats are looking good and feline good...and I think they are awfully purrretty....

Liger
A Liger is a lion bred with a tiger. This big guy could look me in the face, he weighs 1000 pounds and is the biggest they have ever seen and still growing. He does not have a mane because the mane is just for fighting off other males and he has no one to fight. He is a male liger, 7 years old.. Males like mules can not produce babies.

I think they should have named this big guy Jean Clawwed Van Damn.



I am smitten with these kittens.... Joining TexWisGirl for Good Fence Thursday and this IS a good fence, actually there were three fences between me and Brutus... and a guard to keep people outside the fencing.

Wow! I have never heard of or seen a liger! So this is a first for me, and something cool to learn!! This guy is HUGE. I would think just as big or bigger than a tiger. My favorite pun is Jean Clawed Van Damn, har har har!!!

Interesting about the liger. Boy is he ever huge. Great contribution to Good Fences this week. Certainly a place where fences are very necessary to be strong enough to hold such a big cat.

The fences sure look like they will keep viewers safe . The animals are beautiful but not sure about them kept in zoos.

Hello Sandra:) I've been absent from blogging for a few days and trying to catch up. Liger is a new species to me, and this big guy is huge. Great fence post, and puns.

That's a lot of feline fencing :)

Hi Sandra. Thank heavens for good strong fences. I wouldn't want to see that monster without one. Isn't he magnificent?!

John Clawwed Van Damn .... LMAO!

Love the Bengal tiger! He reminds me of one that came to 'visit' when I worked at Channel 10. I'd just come in from the 'smoking bench' out back, opened the door to the stairs leading to our offices on the second floor .... and came face-to-face with this smiling fella sitting on the stairs with this HUGE tiger improbably named "Hobbes." As memory serves, this guy had a little rescue sanctuary in Clearwater and the news was going to do a human-interest piece.

This was, of course, WAY before cell phone cameras, but it's definitely in my Top 10 life experiences!

Hello, he is beautiful. I have never heard of the Liger, very cool. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

I have never heard of a Liger. I just found this out....A liger is the result of breeding a male lion to a tigress. A tigon is the result of breeding a male tiger to a lioness.

HE is so majestic and beautiful. It is sad to see him caged though although he may not be able to survive in the wild for some reason.
