Themba by solariahues Themba by solariahues
Themba; Male African White Lion
Wildlife Heritage Foundation Big Cat Sanctuary [link]

You can see a video of Themba here [link]
Info vid on the sanctuary [link]

One of many photos I took on an open day visit to the sanctuary. Plenty more to come!

When I was blogging about raising money to get two females brought in, it was for this guy. WHF is aiming to breed them to eventually, probably a few generations down the line, release White Lions back into the wild increasing the wild population.

Sure is! The WHF are working hard to increase populations, not just of Lions but other big cats too. And I'm trying to help as much as I can. :) Hopefully my photos will be linked to and that will help spread the word too. Thank you :thanks:

Wow, a white lion.. I didn't knew they existed

Yeah, as far as I understand it the colour comes from a specific recessive gene. I don't think they are as prevalent as the 'yellow' lions.

Hopefully they will still be around for generations to come, but not if we can't save them.

Yea. And the white lion can be born only if both of they're parents are white.
There's a great movie about a white lion called... "White Lion" check it out - it's great :)
