#623666 - 08/28/08 10:59 PM Black Beauties?

I'm trying to figure out if my gliders are black beauties or standard grey.. I cannot find any pictures of BB. I have a few pictures of my gliders but I can't tell from the descriptions I've been given.. does anyone have a picture of a black beauty?

#623669 - 08/28/08 11:02 PM Re: Black Beauties? [Re: ]

just a few pictures of mine.. non of the pics are that great of quality but maybe it will help.

This one has the best view.. even though still poor quality.

All four of my gliders have a black circle outline below their ears.. then a line that goes down almost to the middle of their chin.. is that what they mean by chin strap?

#623696 - 08/28/08 11:52 PM Re: Black Beauties? [Re: ]

Sorry no one has answered your question.

I'm not a color expert. But to the best of my knowledge the chin strap has to fully connect for them to be considered black beauty (and yes, the chin strap is the one that goes under their chinny-chin-chin).

Some gliders have darker markings than others. Yours look very beautiful whether they are BB or not.

One easy thing to do is to look at their belly, is it white or grey?

Are any of your babies for sale? - as I am looking for a female bb.

#624074 - 08/29/08 03:11 PM Re: Black Beauties? [Re: ]

I've been trying to figure out why my buddy looked 'different' than typical gliders... I mean I saw something different about his face- but couldn't put my finger on it. He's got a faint chin strap and his belly hair is mostly grey with white mixed in.

If he'd quit being camera shy...I'll share pictures to see if I'm crazy..

#624081 - 08/29/08 03:30 PM Re: Black Beauties? [Re: ]

I don't know why I didn't think of doing this to begin with. Here's the picture I shared during my intro to you guys.

the black/gray under his eye... is that the 'chin strap' you are referring to? His stops right at his mouth on both sides. His belly fur is gray with white mixed.
