Check out these adorable liliger cubs frolicking around the Novosibirsk Zoo in Russia.
What's a liliger you ask? The terminology of lion-tiger offspring is actually quite complicated. Here's a breakdown:
Liger: Offspring of a male lion and a female tiger, or tigress
Tigon: Offspring of a male tiger and a female lion, or lioness
Liliger: Offspring of a male lion and a female liger
The triplet liliger cubs were born to an African lion, Sam, and a liger named Zita. Below, see photographs of them taken on June 16, when they were exactly one month old. Whatever you call them, they're all cute as buttons! Enjoy.
Bonus: Footage of the triplet cubs being nursed by mom Zita in June.
