I remember hearing somewhere that Ligers suffer from health problems because of their mixed heritage.

Hopefully it won't be too bad for them.

Actually, most ligers live long and healthy lives due to hybrid vigor. The reason why a few are ill is mainly because of chronic neglection.

Ahhh, I see you have been brainwashed by the propaganda videos awash through youtube put out by the owner of "Hercules" the liger. There's no such thing as "hybrid vigor". It's a fictitious term he made up all by himself. Doesn't exist. No such thing. Total fabrication by one man alone in his attempt to silence naysayers and facilitate publicizing and making money off of his obese animal who he parades around for fun and profit. They live neither long nor healthy lives. There has only been one liger ever recorded to make it to age 20 in captivity, but lions and tigers will live that long half the time in captivity, and often live past 25. And as the owners of the one that actually has made it to 20 THEMSELVES will tell you here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5ryCM… she's not HEALTHY. I don't like their strict no-touch policy, they should treat their animals on individual bases and shouldn't make sweeping generalities like that it's not safe to make physical contact, but what they definitely are not interested in doing is showcasing their animals and making them do tricks for publicity and making money off of them.

It's pretty much my favorite animal. It's like a lion and a tiger mixed... bred for its skills in magic.
(anybody get the reference?)

Cool! Is there any chance you would permit me to use your image in a video I am making for YouTube?
If not, that's okay.

I am making a video about how many places use ligers for profit and how sometimes they suffer from many genetic problems and such.

It would be great if I could use it. Full credit would be given to you, and I'd provide a link to your DeviantArt account, in the description and video itself.
