Yalta Zoo "Fairy Tale" is a remarkably beautiful and unique location, with a magnificent view of Yalta and the Crimean Mountains. This is the first and by far the largest private zoo in the former USSR. It opened in 1995 and during this time it was visited by more than 1 million people. Now in "The Tale" is home to over 120 species of animals brought from all over the globe.
In many animals have their names written on the label. This zoo is different from the others in that here you can feed the animals and ironed everyone except the predators, and some animals, such as peacocks, ponies, dwarf pigs and pelicans, freely move on the territory together with the visitors.
Unfortunately, on the first day of spring, many animals were in their winter enclosures and show them all was not possible. But that did not stop fight to capture peacocks directly on lanes zoos, sex, white lions and meal Ussuri tigers ... All this you can read the story below.

The White Lion for a meal
In the wild white lion is extremely rare. White albino lions, they are the result of recessive gene action which suspends the body's production of melanin.
Scientists believe that the "white gene" lions left from ancestors that lived during the Ice Age, when the white coat color was needed for camouflage
Very few lions have a white / brown genetic match. Such lion (called heterozygous lion) to generate white lions must mate with lioness also having a white / brown genetic pair. Both can transmit either "white" or "brown" gene; thus, the chances of white cubs of such union can be estimated as approximately one in four. In "Tale" is the lion a pair of white color, and our visit to the female actively flirting with the male
Leo did not show the Nordic character and decided to work on the verification of the theoretical probability of occurrence in the offspring of white color pups.
And this is how the lions are fed
