Honey the dog and Kwanza the white lion cub are  best friends! The owners at the Darling Downs Zoo in Queensland, Australia started hand-raising Kwanza when his mother stopped producing milk. During this period, Kwanza developed a special friendship with the zoo dog “Honey.”


According to the Darling Downs Zoo, Kwanza’s white  color is the result of a recessive gene, called a chinchilla gene, which is a color inhibitor. No white lions have been seen in the wild since 1994.
