The adorable monkey was rejected by its parents in Tyumen zoo. The zoo director has taken action by moving the little animal to her own home and placing the monkey near her cat. The baby monkey is going to spend 4 months with the cat before returning to the zoo.

There's a Famous Penguin Knight in Norway Who Was Just Promoted to Brigadier General

From the Edinburgh Zoo's FB page: "On Monday morning, 22 August, His Majesty the King of Norway's Guard paid a very special visit to RZSS Edinburgh Zoo to bestow a unique honour upon our resident king penguin Sir Nils Olav III. Already a knight, the most famous king penguin in the world was given the new title of 'Brigadier Sir Nils Olav'." Congrats, Nils!

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.
