::: Liger, Tigon? :::
Ligers and Tigons : Real or Fake? Lions and tigers don’t typically brush shoulders in the wild since they live in different areas. But in captivity, that’s another story. The cats are closely related and so can interbreed. A liger is the result of breeding a male lion to a tigress, while a tigon results from a male tiger mating with a lioness. Since lions and tigers do not exist in the same areas, this is not something that happens in the wild. Real or fake?

They also eat bark, insects and, on rare occasions, meat. Real or fake? You tell us!

::: Hybrid Salamanders :::
Hybrid Salamanders: Real or Fake? In the middle of the 20th century, local fishermen who relied on baby salamanders as bait introduced the barred tiger salamander to California water bodies. These newbies came into contact with the native California tiger salamanders, and over time the two species mated. “To give you a sense of the difference between these two species, they are about as closely related as humans and chimpanzees.”
