今日小常識

This white lion cub was born in Leon, in the Mexican state of Guanajuato. White lions are incredibly rare, with around 300 left in the world. Their colour is caused by a recessive gene, and their coats can range from blonde to pure white.

這只小白獅出生於墨西哥瓜納華托州的里昂市。白獅子在自然界中極為少見,全世界也僅有300隻左右。造成它們毛發顏色不同於普通獅子的原因是一個隱性基因,顏色可以從金色到純白色。

今日短語

當你拿到的是 the lion's share, 這就是說你得到的那一份是最大的。
