Lions and tigers are some of the largest, most feared creatures in the animal kingdom, but they are also some of the most beautiful, as well. Recently, a tiger and a lion were successfully able to conceive children and the results are absolutely stunning. This litter of kittens is definitely receiving notice from the worldwide media and for very good reason!
Most assumed that the combination of these two animals would never take place and the lion/tiger hybrid was considered to be a creature of myth. After all, what could possibly be more beautiful than the offspring of a white lion AND a white tiger?
Even though these animals are albinistic, they have some of the most stunningly beautiful coats that you could ever dream of. The results of this amazing conception are even more gorgeous than anyone could have ever thought possible.
As you might have imagined, this once in a lifetime litter has beautiful white fur, but they also have the traditional coloring that one might expect, as well. They have an adorable tiger striped coloration and while these animals will grow up to be vicious beasts, seeing them as babies could not be any cuter.
Their names are Apollo, Odlin, Samson and Yeti. Their eyes have just opened for the very first time and they are having a great time discovering the amazing world around them. They are also struggling to walk on their massive paws, but in time, they will definitely get the hang of it and become much, much faster than they are now.
There is nothing quite like seeing your siblings for the first time, through brand new eyes and the fantastic foursome is developing an enviable bond with one another. These tigons (or ligers if you prefer) have quite an interesting life ahead of them, that’s for sure.
These images are incredible and these animals will one day be big enough to overpower anyone who would be foolish enough to potentially stand in their way. In the meantime, we can enjoy watching them get to know one another and revel in their unique beauty.
Unfortunately, ligers and tigons are not able to reproduce, since they are born infertile. That just means that we’ll have to appreciate these animals even more than we already do! Take a moment to share the images in this story with all of the animal aficionados in your life, as they are bound to appreciate them.
