White Lion Cubs!

Zookeepers at the Belgrade Zoo unveiled two rare baby white lions Sunday. The cubs were born last Tuesday, and are doing well. Their mother was a white lioness, but dad had normal colorings. White lions are a genetic rarity caused by the inheritance of two recessive genes. This is different from albinism, which is caused by a lack of pigmentation.
