May 13, 2013

This is the story of two remarkable and extremely rare white lion cubs on their journey to adulthood. Both are female, sisters born as white as snow in May 2009 in South Africa’s Kruger Park. Growing up on the savanna, they must overcome not only the same survival challenges that all young lion cubs must face, they must also overcome the threats their high visibility brings.

Nature's "The White Lion" airs on Wednesday, May 22nd at 7:00 p.m. on channels 3 and 3-1.
