So not only are they adorable lion cubs, but they are also extremely rare. White lions are a genetic variety that is so rare, and so contentious, that it is illegal to breed them, for fear of passing down major genetic defects that have been seen in previous attempts. White lions are also even rarer to see as adults. Of a group of 19 that were bred in Italy, only 1 survived past the first month, and it had severe mental and physical maladies. So we will hope these cubs may buck the trend, because despite their beauty, their background is a bit sadder. If you are interested in even more fascinating lion facts, this will definitely give you your fill for the day.
