Why does his beard not turn black?

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Ok i have a question about Kinno. Hes male 13 months old tomorrow. He had never had a black black beard its a grey color. I know what a black one looks like thanks to our stud muffin Bobble. Is it because hes a Leucistic/Hypo Orange Glow/Citrus x Leucistic. Hes a pretty mellow guy only Chimaira(adult female) can get him to turn his beard grey.

This is as dark as it gets.

it will get darker trust me. Wait till he comes out of a brumation and sees a female itll go black. What that is is a "semi" black beard lol.

Oh *whew* ok i always wondered because our 10 month old has the jet black down the chest blackbeard since he was 5 months old. Guess Kinno is a late bloomer lol

Thanks!

My hubby says hes we-ta-did. He has this blank look on his face half the time. But i set him free and he runs all over the viv room maken sure to headbob every viv. But not one blackbeard. 99% of the time he dosnt grey beard either lol Even with Bobble face to face headbobbing and blackbearding. Hes like dude your not worth muh time. I thought maybe it was because he was so pail in color it comes out grey lol Gah wishfull thinking.

That's funny! My husband says the same thing about poor little Fez! He's never even headbobbed though! On the same note, I have never seen Fiona show stress marks, blackbeard or anything. She's just mellow all the time. Belle will show stress marks when she wants out of her viv (same with Fez and Mo) I think it's just their individuality.

Bob doesn't get black either, which is weird considering how 'manly' he is.
