Meet Hercules the 900+ lb liger(hybrid offspring of a male lion and a tigress)! Hercules is is recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest living cat on Earth. Hercules was bred on accident and lives Myrtle Beach Safari wildlife preserve in South Carolina. He is 131 inches long, and measures 49 inches tall at the shoulder. I kind of want to ride it into battle.
This is a rare meteorological phenomenon called a skypunch. When people see these, they think it’s the end of the world. Ice crystals form above the high-altitude cirro-cumulo-stratus clouds, then fall downward, punching a hole in the cloud cover.
