This is probably the most remarkable example of how far science is able to go with modern DNA and cross fertilization techniques; the dolion is a cross between a lion and a dog. In order to produce this incredible rare animal (only 3 dolions exist in laboratories – the photo above is of Rex, the first ever produced), individual strands of DNA from each creature must be combined and re-inserted in to a host egg. This is similar to the liger (lion/tiger crossbreed) Cross Fertilization, Amazing Crossbreeds, Rare Animal, Creature, Dolion Cross, Dog Crossed, Animal Science, Lion Tiger Crossbreed, Called Dolion

A beautifully rare animal found in the African bush, pangolins, often called “scaly anteaters,” are covered in tough, overlapping scaly armor. These burrowing mammals eat ants and termites using an extraordinarily long, sticky tongue, and are able to quickly roll themselves up into a tight ball when threatened. Pangolin species vary in size from about 3.5 lbs to a maximum of about 73 lbs. Taken on Karongwe Private Game Reserve, South Africa

A Jaglion is the offspring between a male jaguar and a female lion - another beautiful big cat, but, again.. Jaguars & lions shouldn't breed.
A Jaglion is the offspring between a male jaguar and a female lion. On April 9, 2006, two jaglions were born at Bear Creek Wildlife Sanctuary, Barrie, Ontario, Canada. Jahzara (female) and Tsunami (male) were the result of an unintended mating between a black jaguar called Diablo and a lioness called Lola, which had been raised together.

Sea Lions. (KO) Vinny was supposed to wait until Wally hit the water and swam away. He forgot the "waiting" part. He dove too early and landed on top of poor Wally. Wally has waddled funny ever since. Wally isn't mad at Vinny, he understands that the poor boy isn't quite right after his ordeal. Being caught by an orca and used as a football changed little Vinny. There was no injury, the orca was gentle and returned Vinny to shore after the game. But he was changed forever. His mama scolded him for hurting Wally, but he has forgotten her scold and is headed back to dive again. Sigh...
Just an amazing dive from the sea lion. A perfect 10.

Ligress Zita gave birth to three liliger cubs in Novosibirsk Zoo in the middle of May — all of them female. Totally thought that when a lion & tiger breed their Cubs are sterile, that's awesome!
Even the big cats are gentle mothers. Not sure which species this is...leopard? The cub is sure adorable.
Ligress (mixed Lion and Tiger) Zita gave birth to three Liliger cubs in Novosibirsk Zoo in the middle of May 2013 — all of them female. Sib.fm’s correspondent spent a whole day observing the life of this family and reflecting on the pros and cons of breeding hybrids. The cubs’ father is Sam, a young African lion.
Baby Kiara, is a “liliger”, the offspring of a lion and a female liger (lion+tiger). The liliger is a hybrid cross between a male lion and a ligress. The first hybrid was born at the Novosibirsk Zoo. Hybrid breeding remains controversial.
Liger | Deb: What's a liger? Napoleon Dynamite: It's pretty much my favorite animal. It's like a lion and a tiger mixed ... bred for its skills in magic.

Curious Dolphins & Baby Tiger Cub
dolphin and little lion cub.
Three Dolphins & A Liger, #1 --- January 22, 2010 -- Photographs taken at Shenzhen Safari Park in South China bear testimony to a strange friendship between a liger, the offspring of a female tiger and male lion, and three dolphins. The liger initially growled at the dolphins he saw through the glass wall, not knowing if they were a threat to his safety. However, he eventually took a liking to them and would observe them through the glass, curled up as they watched over him. It is hard to predict how long this will continue as he may grow to be 12 feet in length and 50 stones in weight. Ligers are said to be the biggest cats in the world, outgrowing even their parents. Since tigers are smaller than lionesses, there is a risk of dying during delivery and so they’re usually delivered through a caesarian section. The Shenzhen Safari Park also houses two tigons and is the only place worldwide to house both hybrid cats. In cross-species hybrids, the reference to the male parent comes first: liger, male lion X female tiger -- tigon, male tiger X female lion -- zedonk, male zebra X female donkey -- etc.

King Cheetah (not a regular cheetah but a different kind,Still they are very much alike other than the markings on the back and tail also larger than a regular cheetah) The King Cheetah has to enherit a special geine from each of the parents to get these special markings, Which is one of the reasons it is so rare.

Kevin Richardson He grew from a young boy who cared for many animals that he was called “The Bird Man of Orange Grove” in his home town to an adolescent who ran wild and, finally, to a man who is able to cross the divide between humans and predators. As a self-taught animal behaviorist, Richardson has broken every safety rule known to humans when working with these wild animals. Flouting common misconceptions that breaking an animal’s spirit with sticks and chains is the best way to subdue them.

King of the big cats is the liger, a lion father and tiger mother bred together in a way that enhances both species' gene expression for size, resulting in a cat that's about eleven feet tall and nearly a half a ton in weight.

King of the big cats is the liger, a lion father and tiger mother bred together in a way that enhances both species' gene expression for size, resulting in a cat that's about ten feet tall and nearly a half a ton in weight. The only other cat that can compare is part of the fossil record. The liger harkens back to the days of megafauna.
The Liger is currently the largest cat in the world, combining the lion with tiger. This liger named “Hercules” from Miami, comes in at roughly 904 pounds. The hugest liger in reported history however, weighted in at more than 1,759lb. Interestingly enough, the liger is about the same size as the prehistoric American Lion, making the animal the closest thing to a real life Jurassic Park as we will ever get in the next couple of years.
Ligers ~ considerably larger than their tiger/lion parents. Here kitty, kitty :)

Mikolah: Albino Animals
Tourists to South Africa's Madikwe Game Reserve have been saying there was a red leopard on the property but until photographer Deon De Villiers snapped this photo there was no proof. Experts believe the male leopard's unusual hue is due to a genetic condition known as Erythrism that can cause an over-production of red skin pigment though it's not been documented before in leopards.
