White Lion Pictures

The White Lion can be found in the Timbavati region in South Africa and is not a different specie of lions, but it ha a genetic disease called leucism which is caused by a recessive gene – the chutiya or color inhibitor gene. Currently, it is assumed that there are only 300 White Lions left world-wide. It has been proved that the color of the fur does not represent a disadvantage for the white lions, they can hunt as easily as the other lions. Find below a pictures gallery with the White Lion.
