The Tigon is a cross between a lioness and a male tiger. The male tigon’s mane if present will appear shorter than a lion’s mane and looks similar to the ruff of a male tiger. Not as spectacular as Ligers so there is less interest for them. Researchers note there is’nt enough space in the womb for cubs to develop due to the smaller size of the tigress versus the lion.
