Think he'll be ready for the catwalk soon?

A 1-month-old white lion cub made its media debut Monday at a León, Mexico, zoo – and from the looks of it, this little one was more than ready for the close-up.

The baby, born Sept. 14, is part of a rare subspecies of lions, reports Today. The lion's camera-ready snowy coat is the result of a color mutation.

Locals in South Africa believed the rare big cats were divine, but over in North America, we just think they're impossibly cute.
