The rare white lion has been turning heads with its majestic looks – with his mesmerising mane even being compared to the likes of Ellie Golding and Beyonce hair-do’s.

Five year old Shalom is the alpha male and king of 73 other lions looked after at the GG Conservation Centre in South Africa.

Pat Shannon and Suzanne Scott, 48, care for the lions and have filmed Shalom in all his beauty, standing on a log overlooking his ‘pride’, reminiscent of the Lion King.

Suzanne said: “Shalom is a beautiful lion and he has so many fans.

“He has an amazing mane and he’s a rare white lion, his white coating and pale eyes are on show due to a recessive white gene which some lions carry.

“He eats 40kg of meat a week and looks just like a king lion.”

Wild lion numbers are rapidly declining in Africa due to loss of habitat, poaching, and diseases.
