Behold! The World's Largest Cat Hercules, Who Weighs

From the 2014 Guinness book of world records, the world's biggest cat has been named
, and as you would imagine, it is Liger!
Weighing a whooping 922 pounds, big is an understatement for the world's largest living
cat, known as 'Hercules'.
Hercules is a Liger -- the hybrid offspring of a male lion and a tigress( for those who
don't know) --
who lives at the Myrtle Beach Safari wildlife preserve in South Carolina. He
is 131 inches long, and measures 49 inches tall at the shoulder.
Ligers, which do not exist in the wild, can grow to twice the size of their parents and weigh
about a hundred times more than the average house cat.
Cool stuff!
