White lions are just regular lions that, for a strange reason, were born white instead of the usual tawny color of a lion. Like all lions, white lions live entirely on meat, which means that they're carnivores, not herbivores.

Yes, lions (Panthera leo) eat impalas and zebra, which are known to be herbivores. In North America, mountain lions (Puma concolor) eat mule deer, which are also herbivores.

White lions are basically lions that are white. They are very rare.

Yes. There was a small group of white lions in Kruger National Park, and someone decided they should be "saved." Today, most white lions are in captivity and bred for the white trait. See the white tiger page on, it says it applies to white lions too. Nasty stuff.

They're not natural. Nearly all white lions today are inbred descendents of a small group of lions living in Kruger National Park. The facts about white tigers apply to white lions too. A manga by Osamu Tezuka written in 1950 featured a white lion as the main character,

Lions (carnivores) are predators of zebras (herbivores).

Lions are predators at the top of the food chain. If there were no lions then there would be an outburst of herbivore population. Too many herbivores would result in shortage and depletion of grass, trees, leaves etc due to the wide scale consumption by the herbivores. Hence, the need of lions arises here. Lions may possess unique genetic material important for research. Hence, to know the Earth and its inhabitants better, extinction should be controlled.

Wildebeests (herbivores) are prey to Lions (carnivore).

The get the majority of their carbohydrates from their prey, which are mainly herbivores.

The White Lions was created in 1981.

Deer are herbivores. Lions are Carnivores. Homo Sapiens (Man) are omnivores.

White lions are not a seperate species from regualr lions, so if lions are endangered, so are white lions. White lions are only a few in the wild, it's a genetic hiccup that would prevent them from surviving in the wild. Most white lions are bred in captivity.

White lions are just like regular lions. The only thing about them that is different is their genetic mutation or their genes which is why they are white.

we find white lions in south africa but because of hunters they are endangered and there are very less white lions
