The tiger is the largest big cat species in the world. More specifically, the Siberian tiger together with the Caspian tiger and Bengal tiger subspecies represent the largest living cats and rank among the biggest cats that have ever existed! So you would think that the question of '...what is the biggest cat in the world...' is fully answered, but you would be wrong. Why? Because a rare hybrid can exists between a male lion (Panthera leo) and a tigress (Panthera tigris) which will grow to gigantic proportion!
The world's biggest cat
Born from a lion father and tiger mother, Hercules grew into an impressive creature, able to run at speeds of up to 50 mph and eat 100 pounds of food in one sitting. Ligers are generally known to be fat and unhealthy cats, but Hercules is an exceptional specimen that has recieved the best genes from both feline species.
During a photo-shoot, Hercules’ caretakers wanted to show his enormous size by placing him against popular English symbols, like an old double-decker bus or a black cab. He was actually able to climb the bus to receive a tasty treat.
Despite his gigantic size, Hercules is very tame and Dr. Bhagavan, one of the liger’s caretakers, says looking into his eyes is “like looking into God’s own eyes”.
