World's Hybrid Creatures: The Liger, Zebroid, and Wholphin

Nature is an amazing force that is capable various feats that are fascinating to see and experience. In Nature we see various creatures that are amazing and exotic. Though they aren’t exactly a product of nature, hybrid creatures are an amazing amalgamation of various creatures that do exist in it. A product of human intervention, hybrid creatures are cross-breeds between two animals that would not naturally mate in nature. These hybrid creatures posses physical and behavioral attributes pertaining to both their parents. These creatures usually exist in captivity due to their inability to adjust successfully their environments. Let’s look at some of these amazing creatures… The Liger The liger is cross between a male lion and a female tiger (tigress). This is an impossible combination given the fact that these two feral cats are not only enemies but rarely found near each other. Most tigers exist in the continent of Asia while Lions are mostly found in the grassy savannahs of Africa. As stated above, hybrids have features of both of their parents. For example a liger enjoys both swimming and being social with people. It is known that lions fear the water and tigers rarely enjoy company of visitors. Also these rare combinations result in the ligers being huge; the average length of a liger is about 10ft and the average weight is about 750 lbs. Though hybrids are mostly rare, the ligers are the most common cross-breeds. The Zebroid This is another exotic combination between a horse and a zebra. The term “Zebroid” can used for hybrid animals of ponies, mules, and donkeys combined with a zebra. The appearance of Zebroids seems rather horse oriented. Most of the zebroid’s body is horse like with the shape still suitable for riding but the lower portion of the body(the legs and tails) are striped like that of a zebra. The Wholphin One of the rarest hybrids in the worlds, Wholphin is a combination between a bottlenose dolphin and a false killer whale. These false killer whales are actually a different type of dolphins, taxonomically speaking. As of now there is only two Wholphins in the entire world. These hybrids show a combination of whales and dolphins physical features such as teeth and appearance. In conclusion, hopefully I was able to enlighten you today with some exotic facts about some amazing creatures. There are many more of these creatures and much to learn about them. In the future articles, I will explore more of these creatures and give insightful facts. Thanks for reading !!!

Wow, those are amazing, but kinda weird looking too!

Interesting mutation of the species.

Ligers are surely one of the biggest cats in the world. They have stronger appearance. Ligers and tigers have same tales. Ligers and lions have same ears. Ligers and tigers have same stripes. Ligers and lions have same skin color. Blend of beauty Blend of beast....ligers surely have the mild personality of the tigers and they are not ferocious as lions... this is surely a magnificent liger....

Wow Great to learn about Ligers. They are simply magnificent creatures :). I have recently found that even the species of whales are a result of cross-breeding. So Cross-breeding is a natural phenomenon that even occurs in nature as well.
