(KGO) -- Honey the dog and Kwanza the white lion cub are the best of friends. They love to pal around at their home at the Darling Downs Zoo.
They formed their special bond when Kwanza was being raised by the zoo owners after his mother stopped producing milk. Honey is the zoo dog.
Kwanza isn't albino; his white coloring is the result of a recessive gene that's a color inhibitor that can result in lions being blonde, near white or even red.
