Hercules, 922-Pound Liger, Is The World’s Largest Living Cat
With a name like Hercules, you know he’s got to be big.
But at 922 pounds, big is an understatement for the world’s largest living cat, according to the 2014 Guinness Book of World Records.
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.
