The Belgrade Zoo is welcoming four little white lion cubs.

A white lioness gave birth to the cubs in the Serbian capital on Monday, adding to the lion family. The zoo now has six lion cubs.

A zoo veterinarian said mom welcomed the cubs, and they're all doing fine.

White lions were traditionally considered divine, due to their coloring, which comes from a rare mutation of a species found in South Africa.

There are only about 200 white lions left in the world. White lions have become the zoo's greatest attraction.
