A lion and a tiger mixed, it's bred for its skills in magic.
The Liger is pretty much Napolean Dynamite's favorite animal.

The result when a male Lion and a female Tiger breed. Male ligers are usually infertile, but females have been proven to give birth to li-ligers (3/4 Lion <Lion father> 1/4 Tiger <Liger mother>).

Ligers became stupidly-popular since Napoleon Dinomite was released. Since then, anyone who saw another person drawing any type of feline was tormented by others, their work being mocked by them asking over and over, "Is that a liger? Is that a liger?"

Ligers were not only bred for use in magic. In big-cat farms, where lions and tigers and other types of big cats (such as leopards, jaguars, moutain lions, ect.,) are held, and if lions and tigers are kept in the same cage, something will happen eventually.

Ligers are normally much larger than both lions and tigers and are reported as the largest big-cats ever. From nose to tail, the liger may be up to 12 feet long. Male ligers will normally grow a blond-brown mane. Both male and female ligers will have some sort of stripe pattern down their back and possilby limbs. There have been no reported fertile males, thus, ligers haven't been able to reproduce with their own species.
You need an example after that explanation. LIKE HELL!

A liger is the result of breeding a male lion with a female tiger. It has stripes and spots. The spots are inherited from the lion parent even though adult lions do not appear to be spotted. The liger is a hybrid cat that inherits most of the strengths of both parent species and is larger than either, weighing between 800-1200 pounds.

Most ligers seem to be born sterile (this is not unusual for hybrids) - there are recorded instances of ligers breeding, though few and far between.

Ligers, and their cousins Tigons (sometimes also referred to as "Tions" or "Tiglons") do not currently have a scientific name, but might be called "Panthera leo/tigris", or something similar.
You should go see the liger that's on display at the zoo - it's huge!

The offspring of a MALE lion and a FEMALE tiger. Bread for its magic skills. Very heavy but can jump and bound very well
Does your zoo have a liger?

The male counterpart to the commonly referenced "cougar." These men should be considered horny and highly aggressive, normally preying on young women between the ages of 18 and 24.
I'm looking for an older man with lots of money. Aka: Liger-hunting
