The Cubs: White Lion, Tuvalu, 2016, 1/2oz, .999


Out of stock



The white lion is found in the Timbavati region of South Africa. While the colour of their coat is a white, blonde colour, much lighter than the tawny African lion, they are in fact the same species. Their white coat is a result of a recessive gene carried by both their parents. As a result, a lioness can give birth to both white and tawny coloured cubs in the same litter.
