922-Pounds: Hercules, The World's Largest Living Feline

I actually just stumbled across this monster while doing research for rideable cats for my last post. I do research! Granted it never shows, but sometimes I will Google something if it tickles my fancy. And rideable cat mounts definitely tickle my fancy. You? You try tickling any part of me and I'll kick you in the face.

Hercules is a liger -- the hybrid offspring of a male lion and a tigress -- 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.


But at 922 pounds, big is an understatement for the world's largest living cat, according to the 2014 Guinness Book of World Records.

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.

Heck yeah, throw a saddle on that bad boy and I am READY TO GO TO TOWN. Or the liquor store down the block. What's the rule on riding giant cats in the street -- do you need a valid driver's license? Can I park in a handicapped spot? I do kind of walk with a limp to the left side. You know why? "Probably something to do with your penis." YEP, same reason why the earth is tilted on its axis.

Keep going for one more shot to appreciate just how big this bastard's head is.

Thanks to me, for taking a chance and Googling something besides dinosaur erotica for once.
