Journalist Qinduxu reports: "A white lion with blunt bangs has become a hit at a zoo in Guangzhou, south China.

"Staff of the zoo said the lion’s hair grows naturally and it could be the result of the high humidity in the city."

In the photos, the male lion has a mane that looks like a mullet hairstyle, featuring short bangs in the front and long voluminous pieces of fur falling down the back. 

The photos originated from a zoo visitor's Little Red Book (Xiaohongshu) before spreading across the Internet, per Newsweek.

The Guangzhou Zoo denies it styles the white lion's amazing mane. According to Newsweek, the zoo told the Chinese news outlet Guangdong that the animal's hairstyle was "taken care of" by the lion himself and that keepers wouldn't "dare" try to manage the big cat's mane.

In its statement to Guangdong, the zoo added that the lion's hairdo is accentuated by the humidity in the area.

Within no time, the images spread on multiple social media sites, after which people started asking several questions. Many on social media were wonderings who gave the beast a haircut. Few users compared his mullet-style haircut to celebrities like Anderson Paak and Bruce Lee.


There were many who also found the hairstyle cute, while others raised concern about the zoo’s statement for natural mane to look like this.

However, the zoo denied allegations about giving the animal a haircut, as per Mothership. They further claimed that the unique appearance was due to the humidity in Guangzhou province that is making his hair fall straight. A staff member from the zoo claimed that the hair grows naturally for the lion and is brushed with the help of the wind.
