    Background: Mary, a tigress in the Menagerie of the Crest Royal Circus which tours India, gave birth to four grey 'Ligers' - the offspring of her two-year old romance with her manageric companion, Shanker, the lion.

    Three of the cubs arrived in quick succession on the morning of December 12 last and the other a few hours later. The mother and her litter are in excellent condition.

    It is recalled that about 12 years ago a 'Tigon' (offspring of a tiger and a lioness) was born in an Indian zoo, but it did not survive long. The Liger is an even rurer phenomenon.
