White lions are extremely rare, most cannot survive in the wild

A safari park in Stukenbrock, Germany is now home to six white lion cubs, which were born here not very long ago. Their keepers explain that the cubs were brought into the world by two lionesses, Kibo and Mawensi, which happen to be twins.

Because their body color does not exactly blend in with the African landscape, white lions more often than not do not manage to survive in the wild. This is because they can neither hide from predators, nor properly hunt.

Therefore, whenever one of them manages to make it to adulthood, indigenous communities regard it as a sign of good luck.

The good news is that, at least for the time being, these six white lion cubs will not have to worry about keeping themselves out of trouble, simply because their caretakers are more than willing to do that for them.
