Lion And Tigers And Kids. Oh My!

Can a lion change it's stripes? What? Zoologists at the Novosibirsk zoo are reporting that a Bengal tiger has given birth to a lion-tiger crossbreed. Seems the daddy African lion lived in the cave next door. Zoo director Rostislav Shilo claims that the cross is a first. The cub, named Zita, is being called a "liger". I like the sound of "tilon" better, but no one asked me.
