Rare white lions make first appearance in Turkish park
White lions are generally live in South Africa and it is a species under protections, he added.
The lions, aged between 2,5-3, consume 20 kilograms (44,09 pounds) of meat every two days, Turanlı said, adding they are yet to be named.
White lions are not albinos, but a genetic rarity unique to one endemic region, which is The Greater Timbavati and Kruger Park region in South Africa, according to Global White Lion Protection Trust, a South African based NGO dedicated to conservation and community development.
Their condition is known as leucism, a rarity where a recessive mutation in the gene causes the lion's coat to vary from near-white to blonde, rather than the common tawny.
