Four white lions just arrived at this eastern China zoo a month ago! Millions of people instantly fell in love with these four-legged animals after the zoo published numerous images of them. November 6th is the birthdate of these white lions. In Jiangsu, China’s Nantong Forest Safari Park is where they were created. The four were all male.
The cubs can be seen interacting with one another in the jungle, feeding, and even posing for photographs in photos supplied by the Chinese zoo.
The cubs are healthy and developing quickly, according to the Nantong Forest Safari Park. On December 26, one month after their birth, they were prepared for their first public outing. In contrast to the 100 white lions that reside in captivity, there are only 13 white lions in the wild.
