The keeper of the ligers also said that despite having so much adventures for the ligers, lions and tigers with humans, they specifically belong to the wild and this is where they can be more happier, satisfied and most importantly more authoritative. In the captivities ligers are just like slaves are prisoners. But here it is very important to understand that ligers have never recorded in the wild in any encyclopedia or archived data. But it is true that their parents belong to the wild, and they should also belong there rather than living in a small square meters of area. In the wild lion and tigers have at least more than 40 kilometers of territorial area. As compared to that, the ligers are just living in few meters.
