What are the Bengals' Colorations and Patterns?

Bengals have a wide variety of colorations, patterns and types. We will try to explain everything without talking about genetics to make your choice easier.

First, there are only three main colors: Brown, Snow and Silver. To these colors are associated two patterns: Spotted and Marbled.

That being said, for every color, a wide variety of shades is available to you. In Browns, would you prefer a warm brown, cold brown or reddish one?

Here are 3 colors that are very popular but not yet "recognized": charcoal, melanistic and blue.

Here you’ll see the difference between a snow spotted (rosetted) and a snow marble. To the left is Jules one of our retired stud and to the right is Annabelle on of our active females. All snows have blue eyes.
