No one can completely discover nature’s mysteries and secrets. We hear daily updates about new flora and fauna species, the animals who disappeared from mother earth as well as genetically modified creations.
Some people venerate and worship these species in different parts of the world and some people are simply in love with some species mainly because of their glory and beauty.
One such creature who inspired awe and mystery is the white lion. White lions are associated with many superstitions and mythologies and since these creatures are hard to find and since they are ferocious and mighty, many people venerate them with god-like awe.
There are many movies, novels, and fictions written about them and white lions have a literature of their own.
We thought that as most of you are in love with this big feline, we should also share some beautiful pictures of a white lion.
Lion Moya lives in the Glen Garriff Conservation Shrine and when the British photographer Simon Needham caught the sight of him, the photographer knew that no matter what it takes, he should devote his time to do a photoshoot of Moya.
Moya inherits its dreamlike appearance because of a rare genetic mutation but there is no doubt that this exactly is the reason why many people are in love with him.
He is six-years-old and lives in South Africa. Even though some of you might have heard of white lions, most of us have not seen one and therefore, this photoshoot is special.
However, it was not easy for Simon to capture the baby. He had to wait for hours and hours before taking some perfect shots but we are sure that Simon is so proud of the shots he captured. Speaking to us he said,
“I love all animals, but Moya’s amazing fur captivated me at first sight.”
Moya would also entice you in its glory and you can scroll down to see this precious photo collection. Do not forget to share the pictures among animal lovers!
Sick Lion Couple Was Put Down Together So Neither Of Them Would Be Alone
Tigers are social animals and just like humans, they also need affection, love, and companionship. In fact, they could be even more loving and faithful than many people in this world.
Hubert and Kalisa were one of the most famous and most loved lion pairs on Earth. The lovey-dovey couple had spent six years together at the Woodland Park Zoo, Seattle until they were moved to L.A. Zoo in March 2014. Hubert was born in 1999 at the Lincoln Park Zoo and Kalisa was born in 1998 at the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden, which meant they were both elderly lions as they arrived at L.A. Zoo, but their veterinary team had always tried their best to give these four-legged buddies a peaceful happy life.
The two African lions won the hearts of both staff and guests by their gorgeous beauty and incredible bond almost immediately after settling in. They were an affectionate duo who loved to cuddle and nuzzle all the time, they were literally inseparable.
Another six years have passed and unfortunately, it’ time to say goodbye. The average life expectancy for African lions like Hubert and Kalisa in the wild is 14 years, so it’s safe to say that the zoo had taken good care of the couple and done a great job lengthening their lives. However, when their time came, they had no other choice but to put these majestic creatures to sleep because of untreatable health issues related to their ages.
But the good news was, they could leave this world together, and they would be together in the lion heaven.
“Hubert and Kalisa are an iconic part of the L.A. Zoo experience, and our staff and guests have been touched by their loyal companionship,” CEO & Director Denise Verret shared through an announcement on L.A. Zoo’s Facebook account.
“It was often said, you don’t see Kalisa without Hubert being close by,” he continued. “So, while it is truly heart-wrenching that we had to say goodbye to this iconic pair, we can take comfort in knowing they left together. These lions will remain a positive part of our history, and they will be greatly missed.”
