White lion Haldir: look into your soul by woxys White lion Haldir: look into your soul by woxys
Haldir, white African lion (Panthera leo krugeri, lev africky - bila forma) 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

Excellent photo. Those eyes pierce your soul indeed.

I am interested in using your photo for wall art, however the sizes that DeviantArt uses aren't to my liking.  I would wish to go much larger, however I would need to acquire an uploaded image from you at its largest size to be able to do so.  Upon your approval, we can discuss pricing and arrange the transaction. Thanks!

And what would that VERY high price would be?

Thanks Tereza!
woxys Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2014
I am really sorry but considering the fact this photo has a tiny potential to win some competition and that it earns some ammount of money through print sells every year, I would not go under 1 500 USD for non exclusive use... It might look rude, but this photo really does earn money to me, sorry!
woxys Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2014

I am not Leona :D
The problem is that this is my most sold photo, so I do not plan to give it out of my hands - I would only offer the file for very high price :)
But I 've uploaded the biggest size of the photo as a print, so you might get wall art from deviantArt :nod:
Thank you for understanding,

This is so beautiful... beautiful animal. For some reason I like white lions so much better than the regular type. White versions of animals rock. There is something more pure to it (only on appereance of course). Don't take me wrong, I like all animals, but white beauties like this are just magical. Perfect photo.

hmm.. looks like he had surgery on his left eye, the black section that surrounds a lion's eye seems to be gone there.
I have a question- do white lions occur naturally (rarely) in the wild? or is the color inhibitor a result of incest? (I've read somewhere that this is the case with white tigers- that is
that they're inbred and have a hoard of health problems)
Beautiful animal- I hope he's in good health : )
XxTheFoshyNozz Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Hi, not sure if you got an answer, so I will answer anyway :)

White lions do occur naturally, it is not a result of incest, and they can be found (very rarely) in the wild. 
White lions, like white tigers, are, as :iconwoxys: has said, are caused by a recessive gene, just like eye color, hair color, etc in humans and all animals.

While white tigers are also natural, there are so many of them because they were inbred. (parents with recessive white gene bred to produce white cubs, white cubs bred to produce white cubs etc etc)

I hope this answers your question :)
