We all know about lions and tiger, but are you aware of a species called liger? Ligers are a crossbreed between a lion and a female tiger. Yes, you read that right.

An old video of a liger has been creating quite the sensation on the internet lately. The clip that we are talking about was shared by the Twitter account Nature Is Lit. They posted the video with the simple caption, A Liger which is a cross between a male lion and a female tiger (sic).

The 30-second video shows Kody Antle walking with a huge liger and caressing its back. If you look carefully, you will be able to see that the animal is actually huge and has tiny legs in comparison. This inturn makes it difficult for the feline to walk.

Ligers generally become very large. They outgrow both their parents and are also believed to be the largest cats in the world. The video became a hit as soon as it was shared and was viewed over 105k times.

However, netizens were not impressed with the video. Most of the comments talked about how it wrong to produce these hybrids. Have a look:

Ligers are not the only hybrid offsprings that we know about, there is also an animal called tigon which is a cross between a male tiger and a lioness.
