World’s First Liliger Born at Russian Zoo (VIDEO)
Meet Kiara: the world’s first liliger. No, we didn’t stutter. Kiara is a cross between an African lion and a liger (a hybrid between a lion and a tiger).
Kiara was born at the Russain zoo last month. The proud parents are a male African lion and a liger mother. Their interspecies lovin’ birthed Kiara–the only liliger of her kind.
To spread out the species lovin’ even more: Kiara is being cared for by a domestic house cat. The cub’s mom isn’t able to provide her little one with enough milk, so a house cat named Dasha is supplying the cub with her needed nutrition.
Talk about a modern family.
Kiara will be spending time with both her larger feline family and her smaller weaning nurse/milk mom.
No word yet if anyone has passed out from the cuteness.
