Lions and Lionesses, beautiful animals, especially the ones that turn out white. Recessive genes or otherwise, I just get some kind of spiritual sense seeing the white lions or white tigers more often. Maybe their resulting beauty entrances or mesmerizes me better?

A white lion!!! Aren't those ones incredibely rare and about to become extinct?
I really love the shot. The composition is interesting and looks a bit surreal to me because of the placing of the lion's head but in a very positive way. Besides this, he looks so mighty, almost like a mythical creature.

White lions are Albino, which a rare mutation that occurs in all animals,(even humans.

Ah no, white lions are no albinos. They have got a genetical defect called leucism which also occurs within white tigers. [link]
For albinism they lack the typical red eyes. Also I think white lions are considered very sacred in some parts of Africa, as some kind of divine animal as they are so rare. This is why are so surprised.

Sorry Heath1010 you are wrong. Check out this link [link]

The white lion gene is a rare colour mutation of the Kruger subspecies of lion (Panthera leo krugeri)they are are not albinos. Their white colour is caused by a recessive gene known as the chutiya or color inhibitor gene, distinct from the albinism gene. The color vary's from blonde through near-white.

white lions are not a breed all by themselves, technically they are nothing more than a genetic deformity. so no they are not about to become extinct :). i really love this photo as well.

I read an article that white lions are very sacred in some parts of Africa, so they seem to be a known phenomenon there and that there were several organisations trying to protect them from dying out.
Maybe they are no "biologically" classified race but I think they are similar to white tigers and I also read that there are (very very few) prides of white lions.
