Can a Liger Survive in a Wild?
One of the most important questions about ligers is that can ligers survive in the wild? The answer is why not? There has been a lot of information that it is impossible for the ligers to survive in the wild. This article will explore all the possibilities for which a liger can exist in wild especially in forests of India, Africa and even in the North and South America. After all the higher food demand requirement of liger will not that much bigger problem for liger at all to actually live in the wild.f-Share Tweet Linkedin Google+ Pinterest VK
First most important thing is that, the force, speed and strength of the liger. Ligers are capable of running at 50 to 60 miles per hour. This speed is faster than that of the lions. Ligers have more than 100% strength than that of lion or tiger alone. Big size can be a bit disadvantage, but to me there should be no problem for a liger to catch and take down the African wild buffalo on its own. If a lioness can take down a zebra and wildebeest much bigger than lionesses, ligers despite fewer pounds small than the African buffalo can easily grab it and take it down by suffocating. It has huge paws, huge mouth; there shouldn’t be any problem for a liger to take down that much large prey. Ligers speed can easily allow them to catch the buffalo.f-Share Tweet Linkedin Google+ Pinterest VK
With the speed of 50 to 60 miles per hour a liger can successfully ambush and take down any of the antelopes whether gazelles, zebras, or wildebeest near the water reservoirs. After all the animals will always come there, no matter what!f-Share Tweet Linkedin Google+ Pinterest VK
Another big possibility of the liger can be his ability to scavenge. If just a 450 to 500 pound African lion can scavenge a food from any of the predator including the lionesses, it should not be any problem for the ligers to scavenge the food from the lionesses, even male lions, cheetahs, hyenas, and even leopards. A liger can easily confront with lioness, male lion, or any other predator at the plains of Africa.f-Share Tweet Linkedin Google+ Pinterest VK
Ligers are highly social. Almost all the liger owners say that ligers are very friendly, playful and like to be around with their mates. African lion is also a very social animal. This gives a possibility of the liger’s accumulation within any of the lions’ pride in Africa. Having the accumulation of the liger in any of the Africa’s lion pride, will make that pride indestructible by any of the nomadic lions whether 2 or more. However, the male lions’ presence along with the liger can give another big advantage. So all the liger will have to do will be to defend the territory and have its meal, either male or female. Even a female liger will be capable of taking down male African lions.f-Share Tweet Linkedin Google+ Pinterest VK
The size of the ligers should not be a matter. Ancient American lions and saber toothed tigers were as big as the ligers, if they had survived for thousands of years, why not a single liger in its entire lifespan. Finally what about hippopotamus, ligers love to swim and drag any of them easily out, especially their young ones. With these much amount of possibilities, how can one say that a liger cannot exist in the wild? These evidences are huge enough to make the ligers survival facing any perils in the African planes. The only disadvantage for the liger, if the rumors about them being sterile, but scientific evidence have proven them wrong because female ligers have given births, as well as high levels of testosterones we present within ligers.f-Share Tweet Linkedin Google+ Pinterest VK
The only disadvantage for the liger, if the rumors about them being sterile, but scientific evidence have proven them wrong because female ligers have given births. Male Ligers still have not been successful enough In my view this it is highly immature to rule down the possibility of the ligers to exist in the wild. It may never make a sense at all, after giving all of the evidences above. • Ligers can be ambush hunters. • Ligers can grab the prey down through their strength. • Ligers can grab the prey down through their speed. • Ligers can scavenge with a very little problem on the lands of Savannah. • Ligers can swim and hunt big preys. • There will be no scare for the liger from other predators; even male African lions do not stand any chance against them. • Why people say it is not possible for the creature to exist in the wild?f-Share Tweet Linkedin Google+ Pinterest VK
