This liger – a hybrid of a lion and tiger – tips the scales at 922 pounds, and is now entered into the 2014 edition of the “Guinness World Records” book, published Thursday

The cat, who consumes 20 to 25 pounds of meat daily....

Dayum, I can't even get close to that.

Hercules was born in November, 2001.

He looks like he is getting a bit of a “beer belly” in the second photo.

I have enough problems with my (maybe) 6 pound kitty tearing up my feet if I dare walk in front of her.

Ooh I got a busted wing and a hornet sting
Like an out of tune guitar
Ooh she got Hercules on her side
And Diana in her eyes
Some men like the Chinese life
Some men kneel and pray
Ooh well I like women and I like wine
And I’ve always liked it that way
Always liked it that way
chorus:
I can’t dig it, the way she tease
That old tough man routine up her sleeve
Living and loving, kissing and hugging
Living and loving with a cat named Hercules
A cat named Hercules
Oh and it hurts like hell to see my gal
Messing with a muscle boy
No superman gonna ruin my plans
Playing with my toys
Rich man sweating in a sauna bath
Poor boy scrubbing in a tub
Me, I stay gritty up to my ears
Washing in a bucket of mud
Washing in a bucket of mud
(repeat chorus)
(repeat chorus)
A cat named Hercules...

From ‘Hercules” by Elton John on the Honky Chateau album, 1972

That’s pretty typical of domesticated cats to develop a pocket.

LOL, just look at how huge he is. Beautiful, too.

Last time we were down at Myrtle Beach, I came across one of those tourist folders for that safari park. I believe you can pay to interact with Hercules and other big cats, but it’s quite expensive.

I love cats - had a lot of special ones in my 63yrs - but at 992lbs, that’s one I’d want to admire from a safe distance.

Just a tune-up for the main course. A hybrid animal like that could turn in a second and you wouldn’t even know what happened. Magnificent and awesome, though.

The poet who said that house cats were invented so mankind could know the joy of caressing a tiger needs to have his sentence fixed to add a liger.

Oh yay! I love that song, one of my faves; and it’s another song that never got the attention it deserved. It’s much better than Bennie & the Jets, imho.

Another one I love that was kind of obscure is “Mona Lisas & Mad Hatters”, but it seems to get a good bit of play on “lite” stations (I’ve been trying to listen to pop music again).

Thanks for posting, what a treat!

Do some research.

Ligers are larger than both parent species because of a quirk of genetics. Tigers inherit the size restriction genes from the male, lions from the female. Thus ligers, the result of a tigress bred to a male lion, are larger and tigons, the result of a lioness bred to a male tiger, are average to smaller, inheriting at least one functioning gene to control their growth.
