White lion king, silent queen

By woxys
Haldir, white African lion (Panthera leo krugeri, lev africky - bila forma) from ZOO Bratislava, Slovakia :D there are only few white lions, so this one is real rarity! They are not albinos, only freaks of nature, as white tigers. White color is caused by a recessive gene known as chinchilla or color inhibitor... :D

Other and better shots:

Much more shots of big cats in my ZOO gallery: [link] :D

This photo belongs to me and I can very easily prove, that it was me, who took this shot. So please, respect my copyright :nod: if you want to use my work, ask me first to gain my permission, please! Thank you :lol:

don't you think that it is a bit LOW to copy the SAME comment under art of other people just to advertise your own page?

Hiya, mind if I reference your photos of Haldir for a drawing? I'm practicing multiple reference points and would be sketching him from many angles, so I thought I'd ask about them all. You're quite the skilled photographer :D

And of course, I'd be posting the result on my page. :)

What a lovely beast, and a beautifully framed photograph!  You're fortunate to have a zoo with such great space!  It's often hard to get good clear shots of zoo animals due to the enclosures.

I love how lions are a mix of brute force, infinite majesty and cat-like cuteness c:<
