Hercules the liger appears at Tale of the Tigers Segment which is a small show at King Richardís Faire. Usually many different kind of big cats appear within this segment. About more than 10 different species of big cats e.g., lions, tigers, cheetahs, leopards, cougars, panthers, Jaguars and ligers etc. participate within this event. These animals are also categorized according to their ages as well. For example a baby liger may also appear while its parents might appear earlier or later as well to show the resemblance and share the knowledge about the big cats. Among all these big cats, in the end of the day, it is the biggest cat Hercules the Liger that makes a huge impact at the Tales of the Tiger Segment.

While entering at tale of the tigers, Hercules the liger first walks around the large wooden stage. The presenters at the show tell about different physical attributes of Hercules the liger and share some of its favorite and unique stuffs. People find it very interesting indeed to learn about Hercules the liger. Usually a babyís feeder filled with milk is all the time carried by one of the caretaker of Hercules the liger. Even though this size of feeder is nothing for Hercules the liger, but according to the authorities at King Richardís Faire and at Jungle Island, this feeder allows liger to keep busy and stops thinking about any aggressive thinking. Since it becomes a kind of public event, therefore; any aggression by such a massive big cat might prove out to be highly counter-productive indeed.

At the Final moments Hercules the Liger is also set to grab meat from a certain height of about 13 feet. A part of the meat is attached with pointed end of the stick and the liger is motivated to move upwards to grab the meat. Everyone at King Richardís Faire witnesses this tamed behavior of Hercules the liger and it very gently and slowly grabs and eats the meat. Along with Dr. Bhagvan Antle, China York and Moksha Bybee are regular participants that appear within Tale of the tigers.
