When it was announced that a white lion and a white tiger, both incredibly rare on their own, were giving birth to a litter of kittens, the world paid attention. 

Not many people believed the two large felines were even capable of breeding together, says Hero Viral, but the results are stunning.

The pair, brought together at South Carolina's Myrtle Beach Safari, gave birth to four "liger" cubs, who are now some of the rarest animals in the world. 

There are only 300 white lions in the world and 1,200 white tigers. Now, there are just four white "ligers" in existence. There are roughly 1,000 ligers in the world, according to Daily Mail, but none of those are white.

The four liger cubs, named Odlin, Samson, Yeti, and Apollo, have gorgeous white fur with tiger stripes and spots on their heads.

While the cubs are small and adorable now, they will eventually grow up to be some of the largest felines in the animal kingdom.
