MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.,- Guinness World Records announced the latest edition of its book includes a 922-pound South Carolina liger dubbed the world's largest living feline.
Sara Wilcox, public relations and marketing executive for Guinness World Records North America, said Hercules the Myrtle Beach liger, a hybrid of a lion and a tiger, appears in the 2014 "Guinness Book of World Records" as the world's largest feline, weighing in at 922 pounds and measuring 131 inches long and 49 inches tall at his shoulder, The Sun News (Myrtle Beach) reported Friday.
Hercules lives at the Myrtle Beach Safari wildlife preserve's area known as TIGERS -- The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species.
"We just knew that the largest living cat probably was the liger," Wilcox said. "We have not measured a liger before ... We are aware of other ligers."
Good for keeping away nuisance... everything.
Something tells me that that kitty’s quite the bed hog.
That’s a big.....kitty.
Brings new meaning to Caturday
What does a 800 pound cat get...
I’m not cleaning his litterbox.
Kitteh iz not FAT.
Kitteh is FLUFFY.
“It’s pretty much my favorite animal. It’s like a lion and a tiger mixed... bred for its skills in magic. “
Tiger cubs are cute!
I have to wonder if the bigger a Liger gets the more gentle it gets because it doesn’t get a Napoleon complex...
That being said I wouldn’t want to in the same county as this creature, LOL
Ligers and Bears and ... and ..... oh, my!
“Tiger cubs are cute!”
And tough on furniture!
What do you call the owners of the largest feline?? LUNCH!
I crossbred my liger with my pet sparrow.
This one will need a beach size litterbox.
I bet this guy could go through a bunch of those little cans of cat food.
These animal handlers appear to have a death wish. I hope for their sakes that the odds don’t finally catch up with them.
