Thanks to the arrival of this huge feline, the term “large cat” has been given a major makeover. Meet Apollo, a lion-tiger crossbreed who has just been named the “world’s largest cat.”
This gentle giant is a liger, a cross between a male lion and a female tigress. Apollo recently acquired recognition after taking a walk in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, with Mike Holston and wildlife conservationist Kody Antle. The video was then uploaded on YouTube, where it quickly became viral.
“This gigantic cat’s name is Apollo, and he’s the world’s largest cat.” The question now is, what would this creature eat? Mike stated, “I believe it would eat everything in sight, anything in sight.”
A herd of these things would regularly take down a herd of elephants for a snack, in my opinion. “It’s such a gorgeous beast, and it can reach speeds of up to 40 miles per hour in just a few steps,” the former footballer remarked’
Mike also mentioned that the liger’s teeth are the size of his middle finger, his tongue is the size of his forearm, and his lung is likely the same size as his torso. According to the Scoop Whoop, its neck is likewise too large for either of the males to put their arms around.
Ligers may grow up to 12 feet tall and weigh up to 795 pounds, which is twice as much as a lion or tiger. The prehistoric sabre-tooth tiger, which went extinct 42,000 years ago, is being compared to Apollo.
