White lions, like the lion mother with cubs from Schleich® Wild Life, are very rare and therefore something really special.
White lions do not generate pigment in their skin or hair. However, like the lion mother with cubs from Schleich® Wild Life, they are not albino. They don’t have the characteristic red eyes. In the wild these wild cats have the same habitat as other African lions. They live in the savannah, dry forests and semi-deserts, where they hunt antelopes, gazelles, gnus, buffalo and zebras.
The light coat of white lions mean that they are less camouflaged, which makes hunting more difficult.
