White Lion by C-Puff White Lion by C-Puff
This guy was rather pissy >[ because he'd been put in a rather small pen....why? ....because there was a pretty White lioness next to him >3 and it's that time of year~ (lion mating is controlled in game reserves) It's important to make sue the genetic strain of white lions doesn't die out. The gene for a white lion is recessive, so more often than not if a white lion breeds with a normal lion the cubs will also be normal. White lions are NOT albino. It's a whole nother gene. Like brunettes and blondes in humans. presently there are no TRUE pure-blodded white lions left, and they almost became... well... not "extinct" because it's still a lion, but "not seen around". That's why a controlled breeding program is very important. The larger pen where.. ..things are to happen was currently occupied when we came around >333
True White lions have blue blue eyes. The female did but she was lazy and I couldn't get a good shot. this guy's eyes are more icy blue-greey and yellow than true blue.

Love the Expansion cats can have. This one makes me think “Sigh, really guys? Really? Sigh not cool man, just not cool. You’ve got to be joking. I hate you all. (But don’t worry my sweet love we’ll be together as soon as I brake out of this cage ^_^ shhhh.)”

Actually nevermind. I found another picture of a white lion that had a gold eye and blue eye and I could tell the difference. This one does have two blue eyes.

white lions are the most beautiful animals.
i don't think they'll die out, there are organisations helping them (of course they avoid inbreeding) by giving them big territories to live in.
i saw a report about one of these organisations who help those lions also because they're holy for an african tribe.
but of course it's important to save lions in general.

albino's miss the pigment brown and black, white lions still have the black pigment (you can see this on the nose and lips). [/end random bit of information]
