What happens when you mesh two things that appear similar on the surface but are in fact fundamentally different? In some cases, such as the ones mixing qualitative and quantitative data, the result, by its scope, emulates the crossing of a lion and tiger. In either case, the result is a gigantic hybrid: a LiGRE!
For its part, the animal, combining the characteristics of the lion and tiger, is the largest feline living on earth.
