Inu, that site just links to a website about tigons. Which one is the ti-tigon? Could you describe its features?
There are 10 types of people in this world. Those who understand binary, and those who don't.

Ti-tigons

Post by Inuyasha » Mon Jan 03, 2005 1:30 am

I do have a picture of one but i have no idea where i got it from. Just know that it looks mostly like a tiger. It is almost exactly like a tiger except for the fact that it has less stripes. I'll try to post one as soon as possible.

Here's the first paragraph. The rest is 7 pages with bib and footnotes. If you want to read the rest e-mail me and i'll send you a copy. Didn't want to take up that much space in the forum. You can cite the report but don't forget to mention my name Inuyasha.

The Importance of Hybrids

Hybrids like ligers and tigons that live in hybrid zones are less fit, but act as safeguards from extinction of pure species like tigers and lions. Hybrids form when two different species mate where their mating zones cross (Purves 490). This mating zone is called a hybrid zone (Purves 491). To produce a hybrid, chromosomes from both parents need to pair off evenly during meiosis (Guynup 3). Given the chance, lions and tigers can breed and form fertile hybrids, ligers and tigons. Ligers and tigons show blended traits, from social lion behavior to independent tiger behavior (Green Apple). Hybrids’ importance is generally disregarded and ignored by everyday people (Barton 134). Tigon isn’t even a word in English . Hybrids lack Genus species names (Mayr 133). However, hybrids have special importance to evolution; hybrids defy extinction and institute safeguards for the survival of pure species. These safeguards exist as part of evolution and speciation. The definition of a species became less general to exclude hybrids (Pw 4). The “potentially reproduction” definition, which has existed since 1943 and up until 1978 (Guynup 3), would lump tigers and lions as one species because they can successfully produce a fertile offspring (Pw 3). Hybrids’ existence is bewildering. Hybrids are less fit; often they are sterile, more susceptible to diseases, and live shorter (Lemmon 177). Nonetheless, hybrids help species’ survival (Jiggins 3). Evolution, speciation in particular, has bended to produce a safeguard that protects species from extinction.

Do you have evidence because I have researched quite a bit on Ligers and Tigons and it has never come up that certain genders for species can stop growth. If you do have info could you please but down a link.
