just one quick thing, Ligers can't survive in the wild because they don't exist in the wild. They are a totally human creation along with Tigons.

Thank you for pointing that out, Countess. I forgot to mention that one before.

Although...In theory, it could have been possible for them to exist at some point in time, as lions once lived in India alongside tigers. However, it would take very strange and unlikely circumstances for a lion and tiger to mate in the wild, and they're more likely to try and kill each other.

I have also read that ligers never stop growing. I do not really know if this is true or not.

No that isn't true. They just grow to double the size of the parents.

Not exactly double but the average male lion is about 450 pounds the average male tiger is about 500 Liger & Tigons are generally around 600-800 pounds when full grown.

Good call, I didn't know the exact numbers. But I know they grew bigger then the parents.

I thought Ligers were sterile and couldnt reproduce. Kind of like Mules.

This is true, almost all genetically created hybrids are sterile. The chromosomes are not an exact enough match so the animals are sterile as a way of preventing such a hybrid from happening in the wild.
