Liger Cubs - Malinka & Leloo
Malinka and Leloo are the two twin liger cubs that live at United States of America. These two liger cubs were born in United States. Both of these liger cubs are about 9 months old. Their age is specifically recorded on September 2010. Their weights are not yet confirmed by the sources. Both of these ligers live at the Jungle Island zoo at Miami. They have a special enclosure for tigers and ligers. Both of these ligers are specifically located in that tigers/ligers enclosure.f-Share Tweet Linkedin Google+ Pinterest VK
Both of these cubs have been already sponsored by different business entities to create an awareness program and raise the funds for the wild animals at the sanctuary, where, they live. For example a suburban restaurant at Miami named as Pizza & Grill recently sponsored both of these cubs along with other animals including tigers, dogs and gators etc.f-Share Tweet Linkedin Google+ Pinterest VK
Both the cubs Malinka and Leloo have been regularly trained by their trainers. Usually the ligers at the captivity like lions and tigers are trained throughout their life. This training helps them to be less aggressive, friendlier, and more social and they become less dangerous.f-Share Tweet Linkedin Google+ Pinterest VK
On the other hand, this training in return helps the trainers to learn more about liger cubs as well. The trainers at the Jungle Island have an experience of about more than 10 years with the big cats, yet they still believe, each day and even at every instant, there is something unique to learn about the bit cats and specifically about ligers, about whom, very little is being explored.f-Share Tweet Linkedin Google+ Pinterest VK
