May I use this as a painting reference, please? You know the drill--credit and links in my artist's comments on the finished piece :)

Wow, he's so big now! I last saw him as a small cub, he's looking lovely now:)

Yeah he's a beauty! I never saw him as a cub but I bet he was a stunner. I didn't realise you had photos of him up, I'll have to have a proper look sometime! I love his quiff and it seems to be what people notice most in my pictures :D

I hope to see him again this year and their new bigger enclosure :) Hopefully have a proper photography experience as well as the open days too.

I got some of him when he was about 5weeks old with his sister :D They're somewhere in my gallery.. :) These where the last pictures I got of him:

I think they moved him in with two females a while ago? I'd love to do another photography day there, but they moved the price up by quite a bit which is a shame :(

Beautiful pictures :) Love the baby quiff in the second one!

Yes, they shipped Joy and Sophia from Africa I think. I saw them last July and August at the open days. They are lovely ladies :) I have some pictures on my flickr account here [link]

They are making their enclosure bigger and it's going to have a drive through section! A little white lion safari experience :D

Mmm it is really costly, but I will have to do it at least once. I want to the ranger day too, or feed one of the cats. I just need to justify the expense to myself. I hope you get the chance to go again :)
