I came across another beautiful piece of taxidermy! This gorgeous lion is a white Transvaal lion (Panthera Leo krugeri).
The Transvaal lion is a subspecies of lion that lives in Southern Africa and are named after the Transvaal region in South Africa. It is one of the largest species of lions.
White lions are a color mutation called leucism, in lions leucism mostly occurs in captive Transvaal lions. In the wild it’s quite rare, and wild white lions don’t live too long because they are easily spotted by their prey.
