So the other day on the way home from work my husband tells me that someone asked him what his favorite animal was, you know, to pass the time, and he said something along the lines of “can I have a fantasy/made-up animal, like the liger?” and before he finished his sentence I was like “um, ligers are real”. He laughed. I proceeded to tell him about Shasta the Liger, who was in fact real, and lived at Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City, Utah until she died, at which point she was stuffed and so technically still lives there. I don’t think he believes me.
