I've been holding on to this one, a tailor-made piece for yours truly. White lions living in the wild. The Vegas guys are nowhere to be found (White tigers, I know, but close enough).
Remember White Lion, the 80s band? Super blonde singer. Cool slur:
"Are you cryin tonight?
Are you feelin all right?
I told the world that you were dooooooooowwwwwn on your luck
You were one of a kind
One who'd never give it up
Even when they put a priiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice on your head" ...
Turns out the song "Little Fighter" has a green theme. It's about a Greenpeace boat called Rainbow Warrior. (Hmmph. I didn't know this until today. We're all learning!)
Back to the actual white lions, with the sharper teeth: Folks at the Sanbona reserve in South Africa say the gene that causes lions to be born white may be bordering on extinction. The fact that white lions are now living in the wild and sustaining their population is good news, especially when it comes to future VH1 specials.
