A Liger! The awesome hybrid cross between a female tiger and a male lion. They are the largest of all the jungle cats, "growing to almost the lion and tigers combined size." Interestingly, "in history there have been stories of ligers found in the wild. Ligers were long thought to be sterile, but this theory was disproved in 1953, when a 15 year old liger was successfully mated with a male lion. The cub survived into adulthood, despite having poor health."
