LARGEST LIVING CAT From tiny to huge, here is Hercules. He may look like a demi-god, but this big cat is actually a liger, which is a lion and tiger hybrid. Hercules weighs 922 pounds and is an impressive 10 feet tall. The gentle giant towers over his friends at Myrtle Beach Safari wildlife preserve, where he also has quite a number of fans.
The Liger is currently the largest cat in the world, combining the of lion with tiger. This liger named “Hercules” from Miami, comes in at roughly 904 pounds. The hugest liger in reported history however, weighted in at more than 1,759lb. Interestingly enough, the liger is about the same size as the prehistoric American Lion, making the animal the closest thing to a real life Jurassic Park as we will ever get in the next couple of years.
