Yes, Ligers do exist however tigon is not a term used often because it is also a word for a dragon and tiger hybrid (which obviously doesn't exist) hope this helps!

Can a tigon mate with another tigon and produce another tigon?

Nearly all tigons and ligers are sterile, like most hybrids. Occasionally a female will be fertile, but males are always sterile, so you could almost never breed them. You can, however, breed a fertile female back to one of the parent species. In this case, you get: Tigon + tiger = ti-tigon Tigon + lion = li-tigon Liger + tiger = ti-liger Liger + lion = li-liger Hope this helped! : ) / T_T / : P / > / O_O / : D / X_X
