      I realy don't understand why a good zoo is keeping such an animal.....it's sad and i think its very unprofessional.

      I believe that the Tigon at the National Zoo in Canberra was rescued from a circus - the zoo gave it a home to live out the rest of its life.

      ligers and tigons

      i honstly don't think zoo's should breed and exhibit those kind of animals, but if they recued it from somewhere its a good thing, still i think those animals should be kept off the scences.
      they are amazing animals and very intresting but i dont think zoos should educate people to belive thats its ok to breed different kinds of animals togther.
