I didn't know that either. I thought they only first interbred lions and tigers about 2 years ago. Shows how out of date I am.

I know ligers and tigons can reproduce, but are their offspring fertile?

they probably can reproduce but mating them is illegal and an addition the death rate is very high so "owners" tend to lose a lot of money when making tigons and ligers and even more so for li-ligers. So it doesn't make too much sense to mate them.
