baby lliler born in Russian Zoo - a cross between a lion and a tiger

A Russian Zoo has announced the birth of an unusual new arrival: the world's first known "liliger". SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO

The cute cub's father is an African lion, while her mother is a "liger" - a cross between a lion and a tiger.

To make matters even more complicated, the cub is being raised by a domestic cat because her mother isn't providing enough milk to feed her.

The liliger is being cared for at Novosibirsk Zoo, which specialises in captive breeding programmes for endangered species.
