LEU/BEW = Leucistic or Black Eyed White
MO=Mosaic
WFB=White Faced Blonde
WFG=White Faced Grey
WFL=White Faced Lion

I know there are others but I don't know for sure what the abbreviations are, so I will let others fill them in. wink

No it is a golden coloring around the head and neck (if I understand correctly). I think it is difficult to tell, but there are some people that can tell a 'true' lion from another glider. dunno

LOL I don't know the exact spelling but it means they possibly carry the gene to produce that color. Leu hets are the most common that I know of.

right. and the percentage of het they are is the percentage chance they can be a 100% het and possibly produce a leu. It's all pretty complicated to me LOL but that's from what I understand.

Het=heterozygous - meaning (in simple terms) that they carry the gene but do not express it. thumb
