White Lion Cubs, Seaview Lion Park, Port Elizabeth, South Africa
White lions unfortunately no longer exist in the wild, due to the lack of camouflage and heavy poaching for their exotic fur. Seaview has a breeding program that promotes the continuation of the unique white lion.
First we visited these four 3.5 month-old cubs that were lazying in the sun on a deck. We got to pet them and even hold them in our arms - an absolutely incredible experience. We especially enjoyed Cliff's antics, being the dominate alpha male of the group and the only lion cub of the group to display the white gene. Finn, on the other hand, was an extremely gentle brown-coloured cub that was happier resting in the shade.
