White lion cubs in Timbavati Reserve, South Africa

Two white lion cubs, 8-9 months old, are being viewed in the Timbavati Reserve. A couple of white lions/cubs appear in the Timbavati every few years. Here is a Kings Camp ranger report and a few photos on current sightings and a good history of sightings and published reference material.

Their eyes are very light too, maybe blue or gray? Wonderful.

I saw pics yesterday but I thought it was (another) hoax. Thanks for the report. I hope their fate is not the same as their predecessors. Beautiful!!!
