    NEW YORK, NY, December 04, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- A male Lion and female Ligress gave birth to three female Liligers cubs on Sunday December 1st, 2013 at the Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Park near Oklahoma City. These cubs are a conservation success and a first for a North American Zoo. The Zoo is giving mom time to bond with and care for her cubs.

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
Taliger is a hybrid cross between a male tiger and a ligress

The first known hybrid, a female Liliger named Kiara, was born at the Novosibirsk Zoo in Russia, in September 2012.

On November 29, 2013 a male Lion named Simba and a female Liger named Akara gave birth to the first Liliger in the United States. At approximately 3am on November 30, 2013, Akara gave birth to two more cubs at the Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Park in Wynnewood, OK.

This is not the only record for the Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Park. The world's first taligers were born on August 16, 2007 at The Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Park in Wynnewood, OK. Yung Yi is the world's first Taliger a cross breed of a Ligar and Tiger. Currently there are three Taligers living at the park.

Continuing the work of the sanctuary is dependent on donations from the general public. The sanctuary has depended on the help of hundreds of others who have funded everything from cages to full-scale rescue operations in memory of loved ones who cared about animals.

The zoo has the largest number of tigers held in captivity in the United States. Founded in 1997 by Francis and Shirley Schreibvogel, it is home to more than 1,400 animals and 128 different species, and never turns down a rescue. The sole purpose of the park is saving lives and educating the public.

You can help the Zoo and new Liligers Cubs by visiting http://gwzoo.org and making a donation today.
