Man. I never knew ligers were fertile! I always thought they were infertile.
I remember (wrongly) thinking as a kid that I could "totally" take on a lion in combat if I had a spear.. That was until I saw one, and then concluded that it would take at least 4 of us kids, where 3 of us would probably suffer mortal wounds at the attempt.. lol. Ligers are even bigger than Lions.
With the rediscovery of the bird, it makes me wonder how many hybrid species we have yet to discover or even create!! Imagine the possibilities.
