Rare White Lions

Often mistaken for albino lions, their translucent fur and bright blue eyes are the product of a rare gene, meaning they are seen by many, including tribal elders in Africa, as the most sacred animal on the African continent. White lions are unprotected by South African law, and are a prized hunting trophy due to their natural beauty and rarity. After many years of hunting and removals to zoos and captive breeding areas, white lions are now technically extinct in the wild.
