Originary from South Africa , with lions can also be found in various zoos in the world such as Jurques zoo in France or Westmidland Safari Park in UK where a big family of white lions is rising.
Also known as the Timbavati Lions due to the region they come from , white lions are considered to be divine by locals who protect them and consider themselves blessed when they get to see one.
Their white color comes from a gene mutation similar to albinism but far less dangerous than the gene white tigers have. Being so rare ( only 300 in the world ) and so hard to breed , white lion cubs have a staggering price of nearly 140,000 $.
