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.
