Love does not know colours by woxys Love does not know colours by woxys
Haldir, white African lion (Panthera leo krugeri, lev africky - bila forma) and his mate Jawa from ZOO Bratislava, Slovakia :D there are only few white lions, so this one is real rarity! They are not albinos, only freaks of nature, as white tigers. White color is caused by a recessive gene known as chinchilla or color inhibitor... :D

Other and better shots:





Much more shots of big cats in my ZOO gallery: [link] :D



This photo belongs to me and I can very easily prove, that it was me, who took this shot. So please, respect my copyright :nod: if you want to use my work, ask me first to gain my permission, please! Thank you :lol:

I heard that lionesses will choose a lion based on the darkness of his mane. (some animal planet thing)
Anyway, i really love this picture! :heart:

Sweet! I love it. :aww:
Though, for lions, color does sometimes matter. If you take a light main colored male lion, and a dark main colored male lion, the femails would prefere to go to the lion with the dark main, first choice, The light main male would only be second choice. Proven fact. But I still love this, and the name. It's still so pretty. :aww:

I think if it was shot from a little bit lower it would give the lions a bit more pride, which I think is important. Though perhaps this angle does humanize them as lions from low angles is done a lot.

thats amazing! Im surprised he got a mate. I've gone to a zoo and i've seen a white lion, but the two females in his exhibit totally shunned him. I was watching a show and it was saying how female lions usually go for males with darker manes. So that's why i was thinking an albino male is less likely to get a mate

be careful, he is not albino :D and she has no choice, he is the only male there :D
