A lion and a tiger finding romance is rare and often discouraged. Even more rare is a white tiger and a white lion getting together. There are only approximately 1,200 white tigers and 300 white lions left in the world. So it was quite the event when, in 2014, a white male lion named Ivory mated with a white tiger named Saraswati at Myrtle Beach Safari.
2. They Met At Myrtle Beach Safari In South Carolina
Myrtle Beach Safari is a rare animal preserve that saves animals such as the white tigers and lions. It's an incredible place that allows tourists to have close-up encounters with the animals they rescue.
In 2014, Saraswati gave birth to four male white liger cubs! Half lion, half tiger, all ridiculously cute and the only ones of their kind! There are only 1,000 ligers in existence as is, making these babies absurdly rare.
In fact, the liger cubs' uncle, Hercules, is the biggest cat in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, clocking in at 922 pounds. According to the doctor at Myrtle Becah Safari, Yeti will be at least as big as him.
