White lion and broken pons by woxys White lion and broken pons 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

Do not forget to have a look at my ANIMAL PHOTO CALENDAR 2010 FOR FREE!

Hello there, I just wanted to ask if I could use this photo as reference for a getting better at lion anatomy. It's a stunning shot and a stunning animal, wonderfully taken.
I would of course credit you if you should allow me to use it.

Thank you for your consideration. :)

Scientists think that the gene evolved when the planet was a much colder place and lions lived in snowy areas, so their coats gradually turned white to be able to hunt better. As ambush predators, camouflage is important.
Anyway! Great shot, this is my favourite animal, and you captured his curiosity quite well.
