    Are you telling me "ligers" are real?! Or was it just something about evolution?

    As for hybrids, it seems the definition of hybrid has been thoroughly explained. Were you planning on crossing a Nep and a flytrap? If so, I HIGHLY doubt anything would happen except not getting any seed. But then again I guess that has also been established. I just wanted to post about the "liger" and "tigon" but yet I felt that I had to at least stick to the subject also. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    The different colors and shapes on the variety grown by folks are simply variations found within the species. It is still however all one species.

    Yes, ligers are real. They occur naturally but are not a new species, just an accidental mating between lions and tigers. From what I understand, they used to be more common when there were larger numbers of tigers and lions in close proximity to one another. Now that numbers have dwindled due to habitat destruction and poaching, it is less common. The one I saw on TV was an accidental mating at a animal preserve. And let me tell you...it was HUGE. Its the largest known cat in the feline family. They didn't show any tigons on the show I saw.

    Thank you very much. I think I have enough information on hyubrids now but maybe a link or two would be nice to a site that talks about them too for my folder. I can print and put more information in my folder on hybrids if you know any good web sites. Thank you for wishing me luck with my badge. I have new vfts from Mr Bob and one I bought myself and I am going to get a new nepenthes plant. I have soil mixes and I have distilled water and pots. Thanks again very very much. Nick.
