Yes, white Lions do exist. The white color of lions is a genetic abnormality which is unique to the Timbavati region of South Africa. However, they are considered to be extinct in the wild because of over-hunting. Completely black, i.e a melanistic lion might exist theoretically, and may be present omewhere, but is not recorded officially yet. There is one mention about an entirely black Lion spotted in Tanzania in a book called My Pride and Joy, written by George Adamson in 1987.
