The 1-month-old white lion cub plays at Leon's Zoo.
A rare snow-white lion cub met the media on Monday, making its first official appearance since it was born Sept. 14 at Leon's Zoo in the city of Leon, in the Mexican state of Guanajuato.
White lions are not albinos. They are color mutations of a certain subspecies of lion, and quite rare. When they occurred in the wild in South Africa, the locals regarded them as divine. We think this little guy is pretty divine too!
One of the first photos of the precious little thing.
