Liger on the other hand is a hybrid breed between lion and tiger. Some reports give the possibility that liger were also existed in the wild as well thousands of years ago, as the territories of lions and tigers would have been highly overlapped because of their huge populations. A liger usually weighs around 1000 pounds. One of the famous liger named as Hercules weighed 900 pound. It was declared as non-obese biggest liger in the world. A liger in Wisconsin was believed to be around 1600 pounds. That might make the liger one of the biggest cat creatures in the world.
