White lion king, silent queen by woxys White lion king, silent queen 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

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:

Despite this creature literally being the epiphany of beautiful....you can tell there is something not right about this creature. Not its physical form so to speak, but the color of it's coat all together. You can clearly see he would not fit into nature as naturally as its dirty brown female counter part behind him. That's kind of cruel if you think about it. This creature couldn't even catch his food because of this. He'd die within days of being exposed to the wild without some form of human intervention. It really is sad. Regardless though he is truly a beautiful creature and this was a beautiful shot of him.

Yeah, I know. I just think if people are breeding these animals specifically for their color pigmentation they should stop because it is wrong.

:shrug: white lion problem is far less serious than the one with white tigers. They simply carry the gene and when it does not hurt them and it does not cause any health problems, ZOOs can breed white lions, I think :) why not?

I feel the same way for both tigers and lions. I don't think its very fair to either species because of what I said earlier. If these animals were some how released into the wild they would not survive properly as a regular tiger/lions who's coats are adapted for their environment would. Its more or less they are bread for appearance purposes rather than for NATURAL purposes. Zoos wont be around forever and when these establishments are gone, what's going to happen to these poor animals who certainly wont survive in the wild?

I just consider things like that. Not that I hate these animals or anything. I just think the reasons for why they were born are very lopsided so to speak.

with white lions, ZOOs simply present and educate about this mutation, no harm is done :)
ZOOs will be here forever ;D and if not, there is a loooot of time to deal with this problem :)

This actually means that you capture an essence that can send an emotion over someone making it resemblence with something of they're lives, in my case is something like that and i might add, that you then did a good job
