Yes, These Are Real

A lioness has given birth to two lion-tiger crossbreeds (are these ligers or tigons? The Internet seems uncertain). While lions and tigers (don't worry, no bears) rarely meet in the wild, in captivity they may interbreed since they are so genetically similar. This is obviously the first step toward realizing the dream of centaurs and griffins ...

These aren't actually that new, though apparently really hard to breed, because lions and tigers are naturally aggressive to each other. Ligers are when the father is a lion, tigons are when the father is a tiger.
