These three white lion cubs look more like kittens rather than the menacing big cats they'll grow up to be.

But there's no mistaking their mum's protective instinct coming through, as Azira, a white lion from a privately-owned zoo by Andrzej Pabich in Boryszew, central Poland, growls fiercely at the camera.

White lions, three new cubs


Mummy lion is fiercely protective of her tiny cubs

It's no surprise, however, that she is so defensive over them - white lions are so rare, they are technically extinct.

These little cubs are just a week old and so have a lot of growing up to do.

But we've no doubt they'll remain safe as they play around their mummy's feet!
