standard or sapphires?
« on: March 17, 2017, 07:59:30 PM »

So , my daughter and I adopted 2 9mth old females a month ago named Mira and Dove. my husband and I were trying to figure out if they are standard greys or sapphires.. I thing sapphires because they look so much lighter then what the standard greys ive seen look like but these are our first chinchillas so I'm still learning . any tips would also be very helpful.

thanks

Congratulations on your new pets. They are beautiful. I'm guessing they are beige. As they age you'll probably notice freckles developing on their ears.

Yeah I've had some chin owners panic thinking it was some kind of disease. Sapphires are pretty rare and you probably wouldn't get them except through a breeder.

I was just noticing the different color variations between the standard greys and sapphires and thought mine looked more like sapphires, didn't really look at too many beige ones until you said it and they do seem more to favor that
