This food consumption for Hercules the liger of eating 30 pounds of meat per day, is a very normal food for Hercules the liger. According to Dr. Bhagavan Antle, Hercules is fully capable of eating more than 100 Pounds of meat in a single sitting. But that will definitely make Hercules the liger an obese liger. This statement from Dr. Bhagavan Antle also suggests that a balanced diet is very essential for the big cats and that also includes ligers as well. 100 Pound will certainly make Hercules the liger very huge (He may gain few hundred Pounds of Weight More), but that will also expose Hercules the liger being vulnerable to many diseases and health risks.

Eating 30 pounds of meat in a single day is a lot when it comes to big cats and also when it comes to carnivores. There will be very few carnivores in the world which would be capable of eating that much huge amount of meat in a single sitting. Lions and tigers certainly Eat Half the food Hercules the liger eat (They eat 10 to 15 Pounds of Meat). Pythons and Anaconda do eat a lot of meat but occasionally, but still not on the daily basis. Therefore; among land mammals Hercules might be the biggest Meat Consuming Mammal in the world, even reptiles fall behind within this category as well.

Apart from eating 30 pounds of meat in a single sitting, Hercules the liger also consumes about more than 1 Gallon of water in a single day. Water as a requirement is always important and essential for each and every living organism, but consuming 1 Gallon of Water per day is certainly a massive quantity. It should also be noted that Ligers grow very fast as compared to lions and tigers, therefore; such a high growth rate also means high metabolic activity and of course water a very high quantity of water as well.
