Distribution and Habitat

A white lion's native habitat includes savannas, forests, and deserts. They are native to the Greater Timbavati region of southern Africa, and they are currently protected in South Africa's Central Kruger Park. White lions were reintroduced in 2004 after being hunted to extinction in the wild. The first white cubs were born in the Timbavati region and nearby natural preserves in 2006, after trophy hunting was banned. In 2014, white lion cubs were born for the first time in Kruger Park.

Diet and Personality

Carnivores, white lions eat a wide variety of herbivorous animals. Gazelles, zebras, buffaloes, wild hares, tortoises, and wildebeests are among the animals they hunt. They may attack and kill their victim using their keen fangs and claws. They hunt in packs, stalking their victim and waiting for the best moment to strike. Lions usually murder their victim via strangulation, and the carcass is consumed by the pack at the slaughter site.

White lions reach sexual maturity between the ages of three and four, similar to tawny lions. The majority of white lions are produced and birthed in captivity, most commonly in zoos. In captivity, they may mate once a year, while in the wild, they mate every two years. For the first two years of their lives, lion cubs are blind and rely on their mothers. A litter of two to four cubs is typical for a lioness.

The parents must either be white lions or contain the rare white lion gene if there is a probability that some of the offspring will be white lions. Because the animal must have two recessive alleles to have the phenotype, there are three possibilities for a white lion cub's birth. If both parents are tawny and carry the gene, the offspring will have a 25% chance of being white; if one parent is a white lion and the other is tawny with the gene, the offspring will have a 50% chance of being white; and if both parents are white lions, the offspring will have a 100% chance of being white.
