Hello, I purchased this figurine a year ago.  It was sold to me as a special edition for the Toronto Zoo.  Unfortunately, I know
nothing more than this about it.  I've never seen it anywhere else, but maybe someone here has it.

That's interesting, googling a little, I've found that Nokanda, a white lioness from Toronto Zoo that unfortunately already died, was the biggest atraction of her time. It supports the idea of an investment of that Zoo in a pvc special editions representing her. :)

They also made a few other Special white lions for the zoo, I saw them ebay about a year ago. Great find and congrats.  Very Happy

Interesting article, and yes, maybe this is the reason for the figurine. Thanks, Roger... cheers

If memory serves, there were two lionesses and two cubs. This is one of the former. Thanks, Paige.

The one I remember was lying down, and the other may have been this figure or it may have been the male... Of course now we'll never know because it was so long ago. Regardless, its a great figurine and has an interesting story behind it.
