Two of five baby white lions play in the Manchurian Tiger Garden in northeast China's Heilongjiang province. Their parents came from Argentina in 2003. The cubs are wonders in more ways than one - not only are do they have white fur, they have been fed only on sheep milk as their mother did not have enough milk for them all.

The opposite of albinism called melanism, a recessive trait where the skin and fur are all black. This is perhaps the most beautiful lion I have ever seen. (pet,animal,dog,dogs,cat,pets,our picks)
