Rare twin tigons born in Hainan

RARE twin tigons, the offspring of a male tiger and a female lion, have survived their first 28 days since being born in a wildlife park in south China's Hainan Province, a park official announced yesterday.

The cubs were born in the Hainan Tropical Wildlife Park and Botanical Garden on September 1. The tigons, first born in the island province, are the offspring of Sha Sha the lioness and four-year-old Manchurian tiger Guo Guo. Tigons usually have heads like their mother and bodies like their father.
