Children celebrate holiday season with a pair of liger cubs
An adorable pair of liger cubs made their public debut at Jungle Island in Miami, Fl. on Dec. 13, during a holiday celebration for young men involved in a program for at-risk youth.
A liger is just what it sounds like: a cross between a male lion and tigress. These cream-colored cubs, named Yeti and Oden, were born one month ago to first-time parents Ivory, a male African white lion, and Saraswati, a snow white Bengal tiger.
Ivory and Saraswati are Jungle Island's wildlife ambassadors in residence.
Their cubs are “happy and healthy,” according to a Jungle Island spokesperson.
