Ligers and Other Hybrids

Apart from liger, there are many different kinds of hybrids as well. These include tigon, mule, hinny, beefalo, zeedonk, zorse and wholphin etc. It is very much clear that ligers result from a male lion and female tiger. A tigon results from a male tiger and female lion. A mule results from a male donkey and mare. A hinny results from male horse and female donkey. A beefalo results from male bison and female cow. A zeedonk results from male zebra and female donkey. A zorse results from male zebra and female horse. A wholphin results from male whale and female dolphin (Renton, 2009).
