Silver Fawn and Amber pet rats

Kathrin Guttmann Colors

In Silver Fawn is around Agoutis With Pink-Eye-Dilute-Merkmal. Silver Fawn orange pet rats appear, wherein the top coat is not dyed uniformly, but banded, as is typical for agouti animals. Silver Fawn rats have a clear ticking with silvery guard hair on. The eyes are pink, therefore appear bright red light. This Silver Fawn rats differ from the similarly orange-acting Topaz / Fawn / Argente animals, the dark red (dark ruby) have eyes. When Amber is a lighter variant of the Silver Fawn, which was created by selective breeding.

The standard of the Silver Fawn rat

The National Fancy Rat Society and the American Fancy Rat Society to Mouse describe the Silver Fawn pet rat as follows:

The color is a strong orange fawn (fawn) his, which is ticked uniformly with silver guardhairs. The color of the belly is white. The entities to be between the color of the top of the white belly to appear sharp and clear and not blotched. The eyes are red (Author's note: meant bright red, as indicated by P.E.D. created, in contrast of dark ruby ​​red).

The genetics of Silver Fawn rat

In Silver Fawn rats always are agoutis, d.h. there exists at least one compared to the non-agouti allele dominant agouti allele (A-). The agouti is now brightened by, that the rat homozygous for the Pink-Eye-Dilute allele (Pink-eye dilution, P.E.D.) is. The gene code is therefore A- pp. Moreover, in the National Fancy Rat and Mouse Association and the American Fancy Rat and Mouse Association listed, that minkbasierte agoutis / Cinnamon can result in connection with P.E.D to rats with Silver Fawn genotype. The Orange these animals, however, is less powerful than that of pure agoutibasierten Animals. In this case it is necessary in addition to a dominant agouti allele and homoygot present Mink allele Mink in a homozygous form available. The genetic code in this case is A- mm pp.
