Rare, white new born lion cub playing with dogs in South Africa. Navaro, the white lion is 3 weeks old. Nola the brown lion is 8 weeks old. 

The white lion is not a separate species of lion nor is it an albino. They have visible pigment in their eyes, paw pads and lips.

The males grow pale manes and tail tips. The white colour is the result of a recessive gene, called a chinchilla gene, which is a colour inhibitor.

 This can result in “white” lions being blonde, near white or even red! White lions are described as being leucistic rather than albinistic.

 No white lions have been seen in the wild since 1994.”
