Cool My new chinchilla!!!

My boyfriend surprised me with a beautiful Mosaic female for my birthday. She is 4 months old and the cutest thing. She is very calm and loves to sleep on our laps. I thought, I would show you some pictures of her...since she is our newest and definitely a nice addition to our 3 standards. We have a farm!

Enjoy!!

Her name is Abbi. My boyfriend named her Abbigail. So we call her Abbi for short. She is a sweetheart, but she was "beat up" by her cage mates so she is very scared when it comes to people besides us...(weird I know, we have only had her for 48hours) and she shakes sooo much. But she does not poop on us! She is priceless,

She's very cute. From those pictures, she looks like a pink white, not a mosaic.

Her face is a beige color and she has a beige tail. According to the breeder thats what she is! She is a mosaic if you see her.

Yep, if it's beige, then she's a pink white. Mosaics are grey with white. Maybe her breeder called her a beige mosaic, which is another name for a pink white.

Ok....hmm. I am going to look into it. Because I asked my boyfriend and he said it is grey not "beige". To me it is beige and to him grey. It looks like dirt. Thanks for the info!

Ok, I looked more into it. It is a grey color. In a better light it is grey on the tips of the fur. It looks dirty.

Ears are pink, with visible veins. Her eyes look brown but in direct light they are red.

Chinchillas that have the beige gene have pink ears and red eyes. Sometimes the eyes look brown like you described, but like you said when you look at them in the light they are red. So, I'm pretty sure your little girl is probably a pink white.

You can see pictures of some my mosaics and pink whites on my website and compare them with Abbi. Winmar Farms There are also a couple of tan whites which are pretty much the same thing as a pink white, but they also have the ebony gene.

I am going to take some more pics and add them, better ones to hopefully solve this mystery. I really would like to know what she is, and what that all entails. I am not really good on the whole understanding the "types" of chinchillas. Which is why I stuck to standards for so long.

Ok, I added more pictures. My camera is horrible, but I turned off the flash because I think it was making her look whiter and pinker than she is in person! The "shadows" are her patches of grey. I hope this helps us figure it out!!!
