So not only are they adorable lion cubs, but they are also extremely rare. White lions are a genetic variety that is so rare, and so contentious, that it is illegal to breed them, for fear of passing down major genetic defects that have been seen in previous attempts. White lions are also even rarer to see as adults. Of a group of 19 that were bred in Italy, only 1 survived past the first month, and it had severe mental and physical maladies. So we will hope these cubs may buck the trend, because despite their beauty, their background is a bit sadder. If you are interested in even more fascinating lion facts, this will definitely give you your fill for the day.

Lambert was rescued as a baby and given a blanket for comfort. "He curled up on that blanket and went right to sleep" says his owner, Vicky Keahey, who runs the In-Sync Exotics Wildlife Rescue and Educational Center. Even though he's a big lion now, he still sleeps with his blanket every night like a little cub. So cute!
