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.

Your work is amazing!!
I really love this photo! Don't have words for describing it's beauty! I used this lion as a model for a drawing, hope you don't mind! I should have asked you first, I'll certainly ask before next time... I simply didn't thought that it was a problem since I used it just as a model but now I see it really looks like the lion in the foto. So if you do mind I'll remove it.

This is a stunning capture of wildlife in an enclosed environment. I'd like to access this picture for personal use. I like to use as a portrait in my bedroom.

Hello there :)

First off: Great gallery and photography!

I found your photo by google search. It was used here: [link] I don't think this is very grave, after all they don't claim your work and the signature is still visible (by that I found you). And these pages display photos only for short (but then again it is now an early hit on google). Maybe it still bothers you which would be perfectly understandable, so I wanted to tell you. I don't think you put this up yourself.

So, I want to ask your permission to use this wonderful photo. I want to do a drawing on a philosophical essay by Nietzsche and he uses three figures: A camel, a lion and a child. And I would love to use Haldir as a lion. Of course I would credit you, your account and this deviation, show you my work and recommend your gallery.

Greets :)

Do you know this lion on a personal level, or is he just some random zoo animal that you photographed a few times?

Ah, okay. I think it would be awesome to be able to get up close to animals like that, but I doubt I'll ever have the opportunity. The zoo nearest my home isn't very good for animal-watching.
