Can you get much cuter than these two? We're not the only ones who think the white lion cubs are precious. (SOUNDBITE) 13-year-old Koo Hyun-Sook, a South Korean zoo visitor saying (Korean): "They are cuter than puppies. I want to have them at home." The cubs are the newest addition at the Lost Valley Zoo in South Korea. They're quite rare explains Choi Ha-na, who has been caring for them since they were born. (SOUNDBITE) (Korean) Zoo keeper Choi Ha-na saying (Korean): "There are only 300 white lions in the world, and there are six white lions in Lost Valley zoo, including the two white lion cubs that were born on August 28. There are a total of eight white lions in Everland Park." Zoo keepers say the cubs are still vulnerable, so they will continue to raise and feed them until they are seven-months-old, when they're roar will be big enough to join the rest of the big cats.
