The liliger is an extremely rare big cat breed where the father is a lion and the mother is a lion-tiger hybrid, or a liger if you’re into the whole Napoleon Dynamite thing. Back in May of this year, thanks to science and magic and the nosy ghost of Gunther Gebel-Williams, three females were born to mama liger Zita and daddy lion Sam, including li’l liliger Eva.

UPDATE TIME! A cubdate, if you will, and we will.
