Shaquille O’Neal owns variety of exotic pets, including two white tigers, lion-tiger hybrid ‘Liger’

In the NBA universe, it’s not uncommon to hear stories about players who have acquired absurdly costly possessions. Players’ incomes are at an all-time high, so they have more disposable income to spend on lavishing their lives. Shaquille O’Neal is that one NBA great who is well-known for his extravagant spending habits.

While playing in the NBA, the four-time champion had a penchant for flashy vehicles and accessories. The Los Angeles Lakers icon, though, once said that he preferred exotic pets. In 2015, during a promotional event, Shaquille O’Neal, who is now worth an estimated $400 million, was revealed to have two rare white tigers.

Shaq has amassed a $400 million inheritance, whereas most former sportsmen blow through theirs within a decade. Since his playing days, O’Neal has been very interested in the arts and entertainment. It wasn’t long before he was appearing in Hollywood flicks and releasing his own rap songs. On the other hand, Big Diesel got a taste for business and saw the benefits of wise investment.

Over time, Shaq changed his spending habits and began to save and invest wisely. Due to this, he amassed a fortune that made him famous and wealthy in the NBA. Despite this, he continues to enjoy lavishly funding his obsessions.

Shaquille O’Neal revealed some stunning information regarding one such unusual buy. While promoting the NBA 2K16 video game in 2015 with Stephen Curry, Anthony Davis, and James Harden, Shaq revealed that he was the proud owner of two rare white tigers. He bought two white tiger cubs in 2005, the 15-time All-Star elucidated.

Furthermore, Shaq said that he had a horse that he fell off during his first ride. A reliable insider source informed, “He said he hadn’t tried to ride again, but he still owns the horse.”

Grown white tigers are apparently cared for by a specialist by the name of Tiger Dave on a farm in Jacksonville, Florida.
