I always find these things fascinating. As I understand it (and correct me if I'm wrong) cross-breeds like these are sterile.
I've always wondered why nature generally
does not allow entirely new breeds to be created via mating... such as Ligers and so forth. Sure you
can create one initially but they can't breed. Why does nature have such 'laws'? Why are they in place? What type of outcome is nature preventing
by enforcing such 'laws'? Would it really be that bad?
It's as though nature has a plan for each and every animal that must not be messed with. Don't get me wrong, I'm not alluding to a god here as I'm
agnostic. As I said, I just find it fascinating.
