I never thought of this before, but would a hybrid inherit the instincts of both parents equally, or favour one? (I know that it's hard to tell with cats...)

He (Hercules) was three years old in 1985 (when picture was taken), and then stood 10 feet tall on his hind legs, and weighed about 1,000 lbs. At maturity (which should be about now) he is expected to reach 12 feet in length and weight about 1,250 lbs. He eats about 20 lbs of meat (beef or chicken) per day, and he can consume up to 100 lbs of food in one sitting.

Pretty cool animal.

Yeah. Not to be mean, but. Yeah. Then again, I think the only popularization was Napoleon Dynamite. I think they spelled it wrong though?

The Liger is the biggest cat in the world.

I remember learning of these guys a few years back when my girlfriend and I were trying to determine who would win in a fight between a lion and a tiger. Ligers are ridiculous. That thing's head is the size of that woman's entire torso.
