I found one tiny white hair on the tip of my baby's tail. Does that make her a white tip?

I would have to say no. It oculd be just a fluke hair like the random grey hair on a human child.

How old is she? Does she come from WT lines?

Older gliders often have a little bit of salt and peppering in their fur, so a few random white hairs isn't that unusual.

She's two and a half, and I don't know anything about her lines.

ummmm, no
That would not make her a wt. I'm sure that if I search my grey gliders I will find a random white hair here and there. That would not make them mosaics either.

Even a glider from WT lines can have a few stray white hairs in their tail or tip of the tail and they are still probably not WT's.

I would just like to clarify what a WT looks like, I know about a month ago a girl came of here asking if her glider was a WT because she had a faded white streak on the side of its tail, which is not a WT.

Here is my glider Boo he has a fairly sizeable WT but small compaired to his brothers and sister.

EDIT:

All gliders can have a few stray white or gray hairs depending on age, as metion above. But this does not make them a white tip or as Dancing has said a mosaic. roflmao
Is there an interesting story behind that one?
