A reproduction print from Lloyd's Natural History: A Hand-Book to the Carnivora, Part I. Cats, Civets, and Mungooses; by Richard Lydekker, 1896. The Text states: "Although there is no record that such cross-breeding occurs in a state of nature, Lions and Tigers will occasionally breed together in captivity; but it is remarkable that the only recorded instance of such interbreeding took place between a single Lion and a Tigress. The parents of these hybrids were in a travelling menagerie..., and a total of six litters were produced between the years 1824 and 1833."
