|***Beautiful Snow Bengals For Sale in Michigan***
|What is a " Snow" Bengal?
|Here at Volare, our breeding program
is focused on the beautiful Snow Bengal,
sometimes called "miniature snow leopards".
Our cats are raised as part of our family,
and kittens are raised "under foot" in our home,
with lots of love and socialization from all members
of our family so that we can offer you a sweet-natured,
well-adjusted companion for life.
We selectively choose our breeding cats with the goal
of producing top-quality, happy, healthy
kittens who will meet or exceed the breed standard.
|There are 3 types of Snow Bengals:
Seal Lynx Point
The "blue-eyed" Bengal, the lynx is
born nearly pure white with
markings darkening as the kitten gets older
due to the heat sensitivity of the "Siamese"
version of the gene for albinism.
The body color is a light-to-medium ivory.
The markings are a seal brown which can sometimes
have a cooler, dark gray look. The eyes are pure blue,
(reflecting pinkish red when the light hits them),
and should be richly colored.
A lynx has inherited two copies of the
"Siamese" version of the gene for albinism.

The seal mink snow Bengal will have a medium-to-light
cream colored body color with seal brown markings.
The eyes will be aqua, or blue-green.
A seal mink Bengal has inherited one "Siamese", and one "Burmese" gene.

The darkest of the snows, the sepia Bengal
will have a medium-to-dark cream colored body
with dark-to-medium seal brown makings.
The eyes will be a gold or green color.
It should be noted however, that since DNA Colorpoint testing
has become more widely used to determine exact
color at the genetic level, some snow Bengals once thought to be mink,
have actually been found to be sepia, and vice versa...
A sepia has inherited two copies of the
"Burmese" version of the gene for albinism.
