Dubai just welcomed the first White lion cub in the country’s history. The rare white lion cubs were originated from Timbavati in South Africa and are among the first set of animals born in Dubai’s Dh1b wildlife park which is set to open its doors to the public within months.
They were born on August 2 to their parents named “Beauty” and “Big Boy,” Gulf News has learnt.
The birth of the cubs, one male and one female, came to light after Dubai Municipality released a short video on its social media pages on Tuesday evening.
Children now have the chance to name them and be their VIP visitors before the Safari Park opens!
“Please join us in welcoming two new white lion clubs that were born at Dubai Safari recently,” the civic body said in the video which showed the cubs enjoying light moments with their mother in their current enclosure.
“We invite children of all ages to suggest names for both cubs (one female and one male) by commenting below. Prizes include an exclusive tour of Dubai Safari for two people prior to its official launch, plus other special gifts. Terms and conditions apply,” Dubai Municipality said.[post_ads_2]
Children can suggest names for both the cubs on the municipality’s official accounts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
