White Lions (Documentary)

The white lion is a rare colour mutation of the Kruger subspecies of lion (Panthera leo krugeri) found in some wildlife reserves in South Africa and in zoos around the world. White lions are not albinos.
Their white colour is caused by a recessive trait derived from a less-severe mutation in the same gene that causes albinism. They vary from blonde to near-white. This coloration does not appear to disadvantage their survival.
