A White Tiger And A White Lion Had Babies And They Are The Cutest Things On The Planet

These two beautiful creatures, Ivory and Saraswati, are proud parents of the first ever brood of White Ligers. December 2013 saw the birth of the world’s first White Ligers.

Meet Yeti, Odlin, Samson and Apollo!

Dr. Bhagvan Antle was the brains behind the operation. He had a white lion as well as a white tigress at his sanctuary. Through careful cross-breeding, him and his team were able to produce these beautiful little guys.

The Uncle of these little ligers is Hercules, the world’s largest cat… so clearly record setting runs in the family!

While it is POSSIBLE that white ligers have existed in the wild, they definitely have never existed within a zoo anywhere in the world before. Plus, given the geographical locations both inhabit, it would be super unlikely.

There are only 1,000 known ligers in the world, but this family makes the first white ligers known in existence. Even white tigers and white lions are somewhat rare themselves, so these creatures are INCREDIBLY unique. Not to mention adorable!

Here's one last one for good measure. It's also the cutest!


Winnie-the-Pooh characters all represent mental disorders!

Winnie-the-Pooh may seem like an innocent children's story on the surface, but after deeper inspection it doesn't appear to be so! Journals published in the Canadian Medical Journal have shed new light on the characters. 

First written by A. A. Milne in 1926, and after being acquired by Disney, Winnie-the-Pooh went on to become one of the most successful children's series of all time. However, it turns out there are immense psychological undertones throughout the series and each character was meant to portray a different disorder. Tigger has severe ADHD, Piglet has anxiety, Rabbit is a pedantic loner, Owl has OCD, Eore has extreme depression, while Pooh represents an addict! 


There's a mysterious radio signal known as the 'space roar' throughout the universe that no one can explain!

In 2009, researchers searching for signals from the first generation of stars were surprised when their instruments were overwhelmed by a radio signal stronger than anyone could have expected.

Known as the 'space roar,' no one can explain where it comes from, and the signal is six times stronger than the combined emission of all known radio sources in the universe!

Before you grab your tin foil hat, there's no message in these radio waves. They are waves just like the ones your radio receives to play music, but there's no music to be heard with this "roar." The team that discovered it described the sound as a "boom" or a "hiss" when translated into sound.

This mysterious signal is actually preventing the team from doing what they set out to do: find signals from the first generation of stars.

This is because the signal is just so strong that their instruments can't pick up those much weaker signals. It's like trying to hear someone whispering to you while an air horn is going off next to you.


Some awesome lists!

L.A. residents thought there might be UFOs in the sky during a blackout because they'd never seen the sky without so many lights before!

Strange lights in the sky aren't uncommon. Shimmering stars, distant galaxies, and orbiting planets litter the night sky, ripe for study.

But what happens when you live in a place with so much light pollution that you may have never seen the night sky for how it really is?

Los Angeles residents barely see a single star among the shining terrestrial lights—until a blackout in the 1990s lead to some humorous results.

Because of light pollution, it's estimated that a whopping 80 percent of people have never seen the Milky Way!

But once, southern California experienced a massive blackout that revealed the naked night sky to thousands of people that had never seen it. This resulted in massive amounts of 911 calls with alarmed citizens reporting strange clouds hovering overhead. UFO? Strange weather phenomena? Government experiment? Nope, just that under-appreciated Milky Way.


Next time you want to repel mosquitoes, drink Green Tea. This is why that helps.

Mosquitoes are so pesky. We spend so much on citronella candles and sprays to keep the things away from us.

To keep them out of your house, make sure all sugary items are sealed well. Open cans of pop and fruit lying around are havens for mosquitoes and other pests like gnats.

Bounce dryer sheets repel a number of pests from mosquitoes to wasps and even mice. Place them around the house and by windows and the chemicals in the dryer sheets repel them.

Well brewed and unsweetened green tea repels mosquitoes from your skin. Drinking green tea instead of pop or juice is a much better option.

The chemicals in the green tea are excreted through your pores. It acts as a natural mosquito repellent.

The less sugar in your system, the better, because mosquitoes are attracted to sugar. So, there you have it. Cut out the sugar and drink green tea. It's healthier, anyways.
