my friend and i went up to abilene about a month or 2 ago and picked up a pair of chinchillas. The female was a violet, and the male was a silver mosaic. Well it turned out the female was pregnant, and gave birth to 3 healthy babies on the 15th. 2 of them are very obviously standard, but the third one is a very interesting color. i know that when you breed a violet with a mosaic all you can get is standard or mosaic/pos violet carriers. i was just curious if anyone has ever seen a mosaic like this before?? i think the correct term used when identifying what color he is, is "reverse mosaic".
the first picture is the baby, and the second is the dad. i dont have any pics of the mom on here, my friend kept the mom and i got the dad.
