Tigons? Ligers?

Zhao Yunhua took the rare photograph in Shenzhen Safari Park last weekend.

It's not unusual for tigers and lions to breed in safari parks - but it is seldom caught on film.

This year, two tigons - the product of a male tiger and a lioness - and three ligers - the cub of a male lion and female tiger - have been born in the park.

The five offspring are all growing up healthily, reports Shenzhen Evening Post.

I got the first picture over at Ananova.
I got the second one just by google searching tigons.

OMG. I also found a picture of a zonkey. But I decided to spare everyone the horror of that photo.
