White lions on a kill!

The old theory that the sharp bright colour of a white lion makes it very hard for this animal to hunt has been proven to just not be true!

In the Timbavati we continue to see these incredible paler versions of their tawny siblings kill successfully. Last week the females brought down a huge old buffalo bull (admittedly they were not using their disguise to successfully hunt him down but rather their pure brute strength).

These white lions that we are viewing regularly at Tanda Tula are pure killing machines, and are highly successful at what they do. The images shown here, taken by Dale Jackson while on safari last week, really show the chiaroscuro between these beasts.
