White Lions, Yalta Zoo, Ukraine
The five snowy-white lion cubs born at the Yalta Zoo are among the rarest kinds of lion—and zookeepers were shocked at their appearance. The cubs' parents are traditional tawny colors, but recessive genes caused the cubs to be born all-white. The cubs, which look just like the ones pictured above, are being raised in the zoo director's office for now and hand-fed from a bottle every two hours. Tough job, huh?
