In September 2012, the Russian Novosibirsk Zoo announced the birth of a "liliger". The cub was named Kiara. Kiara was born to an 8-year-old female liger, Zita and a male African lion, Sam. In accordance with Haldane's rule, male tigons and ligers are sterile, but female ligers and tigons can produce cubs. On May 16, 2013 the same couple produced three more female liligers: Luna, Sandra, and Eva.
