This is Ivory and Saraswati, a white lion and white tiger. In December 2013 they had the first liter of white ligers.
Ivory and Saraswati had 4 cubs. Their names are Yeti, Odlin, Samson and Apollo. Say hi!
Dr. Bhagvan Antle is the brains behind the operation. He had a white tiger and white lion at his sanctuary. These beautiful baby white ligers are a result of careful cross-breeding with the help of his team.
This white tiger is named Hercules. He holds the record for the world’s largest cat and is also the uncle to the new baby white ligers.
It is possible that white ligers have existed in the wild before but is extremely unlikely. However, this is definitely the first time that white ligers have been bred in captivity.
There are only 1,000 ligers known to exist in the world. And these are the first white ligers to be documented in existence. So they win for cutest white ligers by default.
Here is one more photo of the white ligers playing in the grass. You’re welcome!
