White Lion Cub & Dog Are Best of Friends (Video)

“Honey the dog and Kwanza the white lion cub are the best of friends. Kwanza’s mother was originally rearing him until she stopped producing milk, which led him to being hand raised by the owners at Darling Downs Zoo.

During this period he has developed a special bond with the zoo dog ‘Honey’ as they spend time exploring, wrestling and otherwise playing together.

Kwanza was born on the 12th of November 2012 at a respectable 1600 grams. Now at around 4 months of age and he is a very robust and energetic young lion.

The white lion is not a separate species of lion nor is it an albino. They have visible pigment in their eyes, paw pads and lips. The males grow pale manes and tail tips.

The white colour is the result of a recessive gene, called a chinchilla gene, which is a colour inhibitor. This can result in “white” lions being blonde, near white or even red! White lions are described as being leucistic rather than albinistic.

No white lions have been seen in the wild since 1994.”

Dogs tend to get along with cats of all sizes, contrary to popular belief. Bitches are very receptive to rearing cats, including very large ones such as tiger cubs. On other hand, many of these tiger cubs when full grown, will still behave as cubs towards the bitch that reared them, exhibiting pup-like behavior towards the bitch, to her delight.
