The beauty of White lions
In fact, White lions are not albinos. Their white color is caused by a recessive gene known as the chutiya, or color inhibitor gene, distinct from the albinism gene. The similar gene also produces white tigers. They vary from blonde through near-white. It is hard to determine exactly how many white lions there are today, because they are held in captive breeding and hunting operations which don’t keep adequate records. According to The Global White Lion Protection Trust, there are an estimated 300 White Lions world-wide. It is widely believed that white lions could not survive in the wild. And, for this reason a large part of the population of white lions are in zoos. Another large part, however, are bred in camps, for canned hunting trophies.

Three-year-old Lucy the Labrador has given unexpected early Christmas presents – TWELVE black puppies. Lucy looks as mystified as anyone as the 12 black pups suckle up to her at home in Kirkholt, Rochdale. A German Shepherd, she was left alone with appears to be the prime suspect. ‘I couldn’t believe it,’ said Ms Thompson, who was looking after her for a short time. ‘She just came up to me trying to get my attention and then suddenly a pup appeared. Then they just kept coming and coming. And in a freak twist, all twelve were born on the 12th of the 12th 2012. ‘It was such a coincidence, and we have managed to keep them all alive and healthy.’

You can’t get too much winter in the winter

You can’t get too much winter in the winter. Robert Frost. If to ask a foreigner what season is associated with Russia then he’ll more likely answer winter. And that is explainable. In Russia it’s the most cold part of the year. Here is the set of beautiful images of winter and winter quotes. Let’s start with Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass – “I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”

Polar bears paradise

American photographer Keren Su, from Redmond, Washington, was lucky to capture the scene of polar bears’ paradise during his expedition to the Waspusk National Park in Canada. According to him, beauty is hidden in the remote areas, that are difficult to access. He said: “We had been taking our chances for days and found nothing. I was there on a very clear mission to get photos of the polar bear cubs. And I believe that the beauty of nature is always hidden in the remote areas difficult to access. Mothers are very protective of their cubs and taking a picture is totally different from just seeing a bear. ‘When we found them resting, we had to let the bears accept us approaching them. Gradually they would allow us to watch them from a distance”.
