Two white lion cubs were recently born at Belgrade Zoo in Serbia. The two cubs, whose mother shares their distinct coloration and whose father is regularly-colored, are the first white lions born at the Belgrade Zoo.
White lions are neither albinos nor a separate species from other lions, though they are rare. Unique to South Africa in the wild, white lions are often sought out by hunters. A 2004 study revealed that only 30 survived in the wild.
