Why are ligers born only in zoos and not found in the wild?

Ligers – interspecific hybrids between a lion and a tigress – look like huge lions with blurry stripes. Consequently, his parents belong to the same biological genus of panthers, but different species. Outwardly, it is noticeably different from its opposite hybrid, the tiger. It is the largest representative of the cat family that currently exists. It looks like a giant lion with blurry stripes. Ligers are not found in nature mainly because in the natural environment, lions and tigers have almost no chance of meeting: the modern range of the lion includes mainly central and southern Africa (although the last surviving population of Asian lions exists in India), while the tiger exclusively Asian look. Therefore, the cross of species occurs when animals live for a long time in the same enclosure or cage (for example, in a zoo or circus), but only 1-2% of the offspring give offspring, which is why there are no more than two dozen ligers in the world today.
