Four white lions born in French zoo

Four white lions were born in a zoo in western France, providing a welcome boost for the species whose population is teetering at about 30 worldwide, a zoo official said Wednesday. The male and three female cubs, white as snow and weighing about 1.5 kilos (3.3 pounds), were separated from their mother at birth because she appeared to lack parenting skills.

White lions are not a different species!!! It is just a recessive-gene that produces a rare color variation - like red-haired people.
