Found these on the internet. These are "ligers" a mix between a male lion and female tiger and claims to be the largest cat in the world, up to 800 pounds. I just could not get over the size of these animals. And to think La Brea boasted of having even larger big cats in the pits, and Asia and Europe, some of the largest in the world. These photos give me a feeling of the size, power, awe of the big cats of the past. To think they came even larger than this...!
