A pair of white lion cubs go on display in Mexico

April 5, 2019

The Altiplano Zoo in Tlaxcala, about two hours east of Mexico City, recently began publicly showing two white lion cubs that were born in March. 

Cesar Toriz, the zoo’s director, says the cubs’ mother rejected them so they had to be bottle fed formula for their first few months. Toriz says the cubs are gaining weight — now about 44 pounds and 23 inches long — and eat chicken and milk.
