Color?

So my baby is black on her top and then medium grey and then pure white on her belly. Is she a standard grey? I know a picture would help but my digital camera is broken. I am sure she is grey but she seems so much darker than other greys.

She sounds kind of like a black velvet to me....but I'm not the chin expert around here.

Sounds like a Black Velvet. Does it look like she has a black mask/hood on? I know thats one way to tell if they are velvets.

Standards come in all shades of grey. Here's an example of how much they can vary:





Both of those chinchillas are standard grey.

The defining factor in whether your chin is a black velvet will be the face. You can see a black velvet here: http://www.chinchillas.com/resource/...lackvelvet.htm

I would say probably just a dark standard grey. Black Velvet isn't supposed to have grey in it. My little girl is a dark standard grey, like in the second pic that Jade provided. A picture of your baby would definately be helpfull. LOL!

Well she looks a little like that second one, but she is darker on top and a lot lighter in the middle. and very very white underneath but just on her belly and paws. Her face is very dark. I am thinking she is a standard grey too. I just have never seen one that looks like her. Thanks
