Bringing the thread up again, since Benetti now lives with me ;)

He hasn't made any babies yet. He was with a female for some time before i had him, but she never had any babies. Now he has been paired up with my Coco since august 5th but she still doesn't show any sign of being pregnant. She actually lost some weight in that period. Hope she does get pregnant some time.

I think Benetti is red/ruby eyed. I noticed he was swaying like albinos tend to do to see properly and i took a pic of him where his eyes looks dark red:



He's such a pretty boy :D

A/- and double dose of recessive c-locus alleles; could be A/- c*e/c*e or something else, it's hard to tell.

Just an interesting anecdote: in mice pointed varieties on agouti background are unstandardised, but in gerbils there is a variety that's genetically an "agouti siamese." It's called smoke (or white bellied smoke in UK, if I remember correctly).

What colour would that be :?:

I breed gerbils too, so i know that colour, in DK it's called Colourpoint Grey Agouti. Very pretty colour imo.

No color really, it's not standardised. A/- c*e/c*e you could call "beige agouti," A/- c*h/c*h "siamese agouti," A/- c*ch/c*h "burmese agouti," and so forth... But these are only descriptive terms, not agreed upon terms for varieties. Besides, in these cases it can be hard to tell the genotype from the phenotype alone making it even more confusing. If you want a standardised name to call it, silver agouti ut (or chinchilla ut, if the mouse has a white belly) could be it.

Benetti is berkshire and Coco is fox.

What does ut stand for?
