    Cats, lions, dogs, horses, rats, parrots - whatever the species is, there's probably a geneticist who can do the litter. We can also do genetics for realistic hybrid litters (check the list of realistic pairings linked in the sticky at the top of the board).
    If you want more options for a litter, just let us know!

  • Cave lions have been extinct for 13000 years so we don't truly know if they would be able to interbreed with leopards. However, their closest living relative, the modern lion, is able to interbreed with leopards so we can assume that they could.


    The cubs are F1 leopons. They will likely look more or less like this:

    Although they may have thicker fur due to the cave lion's thicker coat, and even less of a mane due to cave lions having smaller manes than modern lions.


    Cubs of both sexes will be sterile. :(


    Edit: sorry about most of the photos being black and white. Zoos try to prevent hybrid breeding these days so most recorded leopons are from like the 60s
