Why yes, a liger is the offspring of a lion father and a tiger mother. The reason they grow so huge is that the gene that causes growth to stop at a certain point is sex-dependent, but for different sexes in lions and tigers. I read a detailed explanation that I cannot find right now, but Gene Expression has a pretty good short version.

If the hybrid offspring is from a lion mother and a tiger father, it's called a tigon and does not grow any bigger than its parents. Neither happens in nature, because lions live in Africa and tigers live in Asia.

Well, no, I never noticed that, because our dining table is in the middle of the room, and it still gathers a ton of stuff. Which has to be cleaned off before dinner, but that doesn't stop it from piling up -ever.
