    Re: Albino African Softfur!!

    I wouldn't call that albino, but rather "beige". Albinos have PINK lightbright eyes while Beiges have dark ruby to red eyes.

    They sure do remind me of gerbil babies, and I'm sure, just as jumpy

    Damn but those little buggers are cute. I don't think I could ever breed rodents as feeders...I'd get a soft spot for them and never feed them off

    Larry,

    You seem to be coming up with some cool combos. I am blown away by rat genetics. I still cant quite understand them but its fun to see what comes out!

    I've got some of the beige with pink eyes too. Never thought of it as albino though.

    Re: Albino African Softfur!!

    I don't know about the African Softfurs but in a regular rat beige is almost always associated with ruby eyes whereas true albinos have pink/bright red eyes. I get the occasional dark eyed beige rat but ruby is by far the most common eye color associated with a full or partially beige rat.

    I'm sorry I should have been more specific. I was thinking more along the lines of Tyrosinase positive albino.

    Re: Albino African Softfur!!

    So in other words, you mean beige?
