Ok this might be a dumb question but is there a difference between the classic gray color & the black beauty color? I know they're all just kind of standard gray, but is the black beauty a darker shade of gray? How do you tell which you have? Or are they the same thing?

Thanks,
Misty

Black beauties are a darker black. They have a chin strap and some black in with the coloring on their stomach.

That's helpful. I thought they were a darker color but wasn't aware of any differences in the markings. Do you or anyone have any pictures to show this & the difference in color?

Thanks,
Misty

My BB has the same markings as a classic, but the markings are blacker, she has a chinstrap and the fur on her belly is gray, not white.

And... the black markings are usually thicker than that of a normal greys marking.

Here is a picture of two boys together. What you see is a black beauty curled around a standard gray glider.

Thanks. Anyone have any more pictures, showing the faces too? What is a chin strap? I think I might know what you're talking about, but I want to make sure.

Thanks,

Thanks for sharing. Anyone have a picture of a classic gray showing the face & tummy? Is the chin strap the gray marking going from the back of the eye down to the jaw line? I'm not sure what to call mine...lol. They don't seem to 100% fit the "criteria" for either. Their tummies are pretty white & I think their chin strap area is very faint, so I'm thinking they're classic gray...but their fur is not the same color, so I think that's why I'm confused.

Maybe we can have a vote? Here are some pictures:

Your gliders are very pretty but they are Classic Greys, not Black Beauties. With BBs, the chin strap extends down underneath the jawline almost meeting under the chin, as shown below:

Ok that clarification about the chin strap helps.
Thanks everyone.

Suz that is a great picture. She looks like she is smelling that leaf. Too cute! You can definitely see her chin straps.

That IS a really awesome picture. My gliders definitely don't have those chin straps, so if that's the deciding factor then they must be classic gray. I didn't really care either way but I want to make sure I'm referring to their babies as the correct color.

Thanks again everyone.

Misty
