Rare white lion cubs settling in at Poland zoo

Posted: Updated:
POLAND - A zoo in central Poland has a new addition.  Three very tiny and fluffy white lion cubs were born last week.

They're expected to become a major attraction since there are believed to be less than 100 white lions left in the world.  The cubs are not albinos.  Their rare color comes from a mutation found in some African lions.

At the moment, the three are a far cry from the fierce animals they will become.  They only want to sleep, eat, and get cuddles from their mother.  They're trying to take their first steps but their mother is vigilant and does not want to leave her litter unprotected for too long.
