Endangered white lion born in Spain for first time
04 June 2020 @ 10:58


THE FIRST-EVER white lion outside the wild has been born in Spain, in the MundoPark nature reserve in Guillena (Sevilla province).

And the public can go and visit him in person after June 12, when the park reopens.

According to MundoPark's social media channels, the cub – who would look very much like the ones on the photograph above left – is the son of Alba and Can, two white lions brought over from Thailand four years ago.

Staff have not been able to get close enough to Alba yet to see if the baby has any brothers or sisters, since they saw her cub appear on Sunday and have not been able to ascertain whether she was about to give birth to more in the same litter, a process which could take several hours or even days.

This 'distancing' is in keeping with the environment in which animals at MundoPark live – in open areas designed to be as similar as possible to their natural habitats.
