Ever since the celebrity Napoleon Dynamite has declared Liger as its one of the most favorite animals, the popularity of the animal has increased a lot. Samson is a great fond of sleeping. In fact sometimes, he spends all of his day sleeping in its den rather than having a public view. Since he prefers to be at the shade, the authority at the park wants to change his location to be more open in front of the public. But there was already a greater debate over the issue. That may not be healthy enough for the liger
