Champagne Foxes

Postby Ash » Wed Dec 07, 2016 5:51 pm

I got the new fur book, and it has a section on champagnes. Champagne is actually "palomino." Palomino foxes are triple recessive! They carry the genes colicott, burgundy, and pearl. This results in a light, beige-colored fox with exceptionally light brown coloration. In addition, the fox has blue eyes. These blue eyes stem from the colicott gene.

Finally learned about it! It's been bugging me for years not knowing the genetics behind this color.

I'm going out on a limb here with "lavender." Lavender must be a combination of burgundy and colicott. I do not know this for certain, but this is me hazarding a guess since it's the pearl gene that further dilutes all the browns, producing a white champagne fox.

I'm Fable and Ifrit's mommy. Also mommy to Carousel, Breeze, and a bunch of snakes, lizards, and spiders. Oh, and one amphibian!

Congratulations on finding out! You definitely love your morph genes. :lol:
That's certainly interesting that it's tripled..
