BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – Zookeepers in Buenos Aires showed off their new triplets this week — three white cubs born to a pair of white lions imported from South Africa.
Zoo visitors were loving their debut. The cubs' mother, not so much. She growled at the crowd and carried one of the cubs off in her mouth. The cubs were also squriming as zookeepers tried to corral them.
Zoo officials said the two females and a male were born Nov. 16 and are the first white lions to be born in South America.
Children who visit the zoo this Argentine summer can take part in a contest to name them.
Because both parents are white, their cubs each have the recessive genes that make them pure white.
