Hercules, a 900-pound-heavy, 6-feet-tall and 12-feet-long liger holds the Guinness World Record for the largest cat. Born from a lion father and tiger mother, Hercules the liger (tiger & lion cross) is an impressive creature who got the best genes from both parents. Hercules is able to run at speeds of up to 50 mph and eat up to a 100 pounds of food in one sitting. Despite his gigantic size, Hercules' caretakers at the Freestyle Music Park in Myrtle Beach, Southern California, states that he is very tame.
The pictures below may lead you to believe that they are taken in London, but the series of photographs were taken not far from Hercules' home in SC. The aim of the pictures was to portray Hercules against famous landmarks – such as the Londen bus and Abbey Road – in order for viewers to experience the hugeness of this magnificent creature.
