The 5 most expensive Animals in the World are costlier than your super car
In Britain Pets are revered to the point of the country spending almost £ 5 billion year on various types of pets. Regardless of exotic fish or furry animals, birds or a dashing horse, Brits have always shared a long lasting affection for their animal friends and the tradition spans centuries. History dates the earliest known record of man keeping a pet dog to 10,000 BC. 7000 years later, Egyptians began their own love affair with cats which gave rise to the most famous Egyptian breed called Mau and the Egyptian cats.
Pets don’t come cheap. With the booming pet industry in the UK, it cost approximately £17,000 pounds to maintain a pet according to Sainsbury pet Insurance Company. Listed below are the world’s five most expensive pets according to pet expert Simon Booth.
1 White Lion
White Lions are exceedingly rare. They can be found in the remote areas of South Africa’s Krueger National park where below 300 only exist in the wild. The unusual white color of these lions is not because they are albinos but because of a genetic mutation that appeared only among lions in the Timbavati Game Reserve. Each Lion can fetch a price tag of £ 105,000.
