  That's right. Tonight, Vicki Mabrey and producer Elizabeth Stuart introduce us to some amazing hybrid animals, including a 900-pound, 12-foot tall lion-and-tiger mix named Hercules. The "liger" earned a place in popular culture fame as Napoleon Dynamite's favorite animal. We'll meet the enormous big cat combo, as well as some other interesting mixes. We'll also hear from some of the critics who question combining these breeds — fearing a disruption of the natural order. As you can see from the picture of Hercules and his trainer below and in this slideshow, they are a sight to behold. ———————- UPDATE: Embedded beneath Hercules is the segment, "Animal House."
