I am doing some Mosiac homework and I am looking at the various types of mosiacs. I know what a ringtail mosaic is. However, I see that there are various mosiacs including:
Mosiac Calico
Mosiac Piebald
Mosiac Marble
Mosiac with reverse white stripe
White Mosiac

So, how are these differentiated??? Visuals would be awesome! clap

thanks

This is my Mozeby who is a reverse white stripe and his older brother Akiyo who is a white mo (he looks leu other than a handful of hard to notice gray hairs on his back and his spotted ears).

This is my white MO, Panda. He didn't start out this white. He had a LOT of grey on him but "powdered" as he got older. Now, he looks like a leu except for a grey dot on his forehead where a bald spot would be. And that grey dot is getting smaller all the time.

His joey photo is on TPG database under Panda.

In simple terms its a MO with dark markings in special places....like chrissy's glider above.....see the female white MO/pied in the wheel, look at the back hind thigh, she has a special marking...that is the way i'm taking it

stephanie86, I don't see how Akaih can be considered a white mosaic when she has so much silver color. I would call her a silver mosaic.

A white mosaic should be predominately white with just a couple of grey hairs or a couple of spots. For the most part, they should look like a leucistic glider.

Wow thanks for this thread! I am getting a little Mosaic boy and I love all these variations. Mosaics are definitely my favorite! I would LOVE a piebald!

I know I have a mosaic boy. I know he has a ring tail. But he also looks piebald. Can they be both? What would you call him (a piebald ringtail mo?). The breeder said he would lighten up as he aged.



Sorry it isn't a better picture, from those of you who've read my "Pouch Protective" thread may understand why pics of him are few and far between!
