* Read Masters of the Planet: The Search for Our Human Origins by Ian Tattersall to understand the basis for this fantasy. The fun fact was part of a fascinating discussion of  interbreeding among hominid ancestors [think Neanderthals].

Indeed there is a pair of ligers-huge hybrid beasts with lion and tiger parents-resident in an animal park in South Carolina right no.”
