The world is teeming with beautiful animals that have earned a name for themselves by being one of a kind. They are unique due to their characteristics and also their size.
Apollo, the lion-tiger hybrid, is one of the animals that are believed to be unique. This liger is the world’s largest feline with a weight of 319 kg.
Such hybrids are generally seen in zoos and also sanctuaries, and they may grow up to 12 feet in length and weigh up to 795 pounds. Apollo weighs twice as much as a lion or tiger.
Due to its enormous size, it is compared to the extinct saber-toothed tiger, which lived 42,000 years ago and became extinct.
When the footage of it, Mike Holston, and wildlife conservationist Kody Ante was uploaded on YouTube, it became an internet phenomenon. The three were taking a stroll in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
According to Mike, Apollo’s teeth and tongue are around the size of his middle finger and forearm, respectively. It was difficult to place one’s arms around the liger’s neck.
Mike stated that ligers would devour everything visible. The enormity of the liger has caused the earth to shake. What a substantial kitty! However, this giant is tame. It is friendly with the two men that were walking by.
