Female liliger cub Kiara, a hybrid between a lion and a ligress, plays with a cat at the Novosibirsk Zoo, in Novosibirsk, eastern Sibiria. Kiara is the first female liliger born over a month ago at the zoo.
Kiara's mother, Zita, stopped producing milk almost immediately after giving birth, so zoo employees placed Kiara in a separate facility and feed her with a special milk mix. The cub lives with a grown-up cat, who keeps him company.
