It's pretty much my favorite animal.

Though they are not bred for their skills in magic, Napoleon Dynamite wasn't making up the "liger". People seem to laugh at the idea of a lion and a tiger mix when its mentioned in the movie as if it's an impossibility. Anyway, a friend of mine quoted the movie and then said that she had heard the animal really does exist. It doesn't seem like that much of a stretch, but I figured I'd check it out anyway. Here's what Snopes.com had to say:

I don't know if it was on Discovery Channel or Animal Planet, but one of these channels had a special on "legendary" animals and Hercules the Liger was featured.
