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

Ms Scott, 48, 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.
