The Third Lioden Hybrid - The Jaglion



What is a Jaglion?

A jaglion is the unlikely offspring produced from a male jaguar and a lioness. While seemingly bizarre and outlandish to many, jaglions are actually among one of the more recent hybrids to be successfully produced. Although they are bred less often (thankfully) than ligers and liligers, there are two jaglions, Tsunami and Jazhara, who were born at Bear Creek Sanctuary in 2006. The two are still alive to this day, although their parents have since been separated to prevent more accidental jaglions. The two creatures seem to be healthy, and sport a very unique appearance in comparison to leopons.

While I do wish to show you a side-by-side comparison of a jaglion vs a leopon in terms of appearance, the images on Bear Creek have been copyrighted, and they have stressed their desire for their images not to be reposted. Instead, I will provide links to Bear Creak Sanctuary's jaglion page, as well as the link to the leopon wikipedia article.

How would they occur in Lioden?

A good, valid question! After all, jaguars live in South America, not Africa. However, you know what other impossible hybrid is coming to Lioden in 2018? The tigon.

Tigers are known to roam Asia, and while a certain subspecies of lion, the Asiatic lion, also roams Asia, the two lack overlapping ranges. Alongside that, it is heavily hinted at that Lioden takes place in Africa proper, and not in Asia, judging by its flora and fauna. However, we still get tigons. This is because, at least from what I've heard, that a tiger escaped from a zoo, or was perhaps an exotic pet that broke loose. While such occurrences are unlikely, it is still going to be apart of Lioden's lore. Such a scenario could easily be the same case as the jaglion's jaguar father.

A jaguar escapes from an African zoo and takes shelter in the jungle. Not too unlikely, given how poor the humans in this game seem to be at keeping animals where they should.


UPDATE!
A jaguar encounter was added in the December of 2017! This male jaguar is in search of a lioness to protect him. Maybe that lioness will do a little more than just protect him...

Fun Jaglion Facts!
1. Male jaglions don't have a mane. At most, they have a little bit more fluff on their chests.
2. Jaglions can be melanistic if their jaguar father is.
3. Jaglions are smaller than their mothers, but larger than their fathers.


*** More Info on Bear Creek

Bear Creek allows visitors to handle cubs, which is both stressful and unhealthy for the cubs. These cubs are taken away from their mothers before they are weaned to be bottle-fed by visitors and staff while they are still "cute". Once these cubs grow up, they are often left in awful conditions. Along with that, their production of the Jaglions shows how careless they are towards conserving wildlife. Hybrids serve no conservation purposes. Cub handling is cruel. Do not support Bear Creek, and please, don't take this suggestion as me advocating for them.



This suggestion has 2050 supports and 98 NO supports.

i dont support mainly due to the fact they would look almost exactly like the leopon we already have

@ Roselron - I understand where you're coming from, in terms of spotting pattern, but jaguars and leopards actually have drastically different builds than jaguars! Jaguars are very stocky, with stronger jaws. The spotting pattern is even slightly different, if you look at the patterns on the two big cats! I appreciate your input, though.

I really like this idea but if they did add jaglions it would probably take a year or 2 :/ i support it though since i don't really mind waiting that long Jaglions are just so cute!

Thank you for your support! I'm fully aware that it would take awhile for them to implement, since tigons aren't even out yet, but I still have faith that one day we might get our third possible hybrid announced ;P

The last Jaglion suggestion we got was rejected though. :o

I looked at the rejected suggestions and didn't see it marked as rejected :o Either way, perhaps they'd be willing to revisit jaglions if enough people show support?

Don't Jaguars live in Central/South America? Unless one *escapes* from a zoo in Kenya or Tanzania, this sounds highly unlikely.

If you read the post, I mentioned the rare possibility of a jaguar to escape from a zoo. Trust me, I'm not gonna even try to claim that jaguars live in Africa/Asia, lol.

I read/skimmed about 95% of the post. I must have missed that paragraph.

It's a little too unlikely for me to support, I'm afraid. As rare as the Leopon is, it is at least somewhat more plausible. Lions run into leopards much more often than they would run into even an escaped zoo/rich person's pet Jacguar. It would be more likely, based on mutations/explore encounters we already have, than one day you log on to a notification that read 'that flirting leopardess you met a few months ago showed up at your border today, carrying a weird looking cub. She angrily said it you gave her that weird thing and she doesn't want it.'

Tigons are going to be added, and lions/tigons don't particularly meet many places in the wild. In fact, there are only a few places in Asia where their roaming ranges overlap, and even then, I'm not entirely sure, what with the human intervention. Tigons aren't exactly plausible, and lions and leopards would never reproduce naturally in the wild.
