Spitfire has arrived! After a few months wait, she’s finally here, pretty as hell and with a ‘tude to boot!
So pretty! I bet she’ll be stunning when she grows up <3
fyanimaldiversity: Varieties of Tortiseshell Cat (Felis silvestris catus)
This is a really huge set, since I didn’t feel like splitting it up, so I’m not going to be as wordy as usual. Also forgive my crap fake photoset lines.
- Tortoiseshell is a sex linked coat of black and orange blended together usually female cats carry, though tortie males with Klinefelter syndrome (XXY rather than XY) pop up rarely. Tortoiseshell & white has some amounts of white in the coat, and the markings can be a little more solid. Calico is a tortie with higher amounts of white, and the three colors in the coat tend to have well defined borders, like patchwork. Side note, his term is mostly used in the US. [x][x][x]
- Blue (dilute black) : tortie, calico Scottish fold, van munchkin [x][x][x]
- Chocolate: tortie American curl, tortie & white ragdoll, calico oriental [x][x][x]
- Lilac (dilute chocolate): tortie British shorthair, calico ragdoll, tortie point Birman [x][x][x]
- Cinnamon: tortie , tortie & white, and van British shorthairs [x][x][x]
- Fawn (dilute cinnamon):calico and calico van British shorthairs [x]
- Torbie is the combination of tortie and any of the tabby patterns. Ticked, classic, mackerel, spotted. [x][x][x][x]
Aaand somebanana shed a perfect shed for me, so we get photos! He is so yellow I think my camera freaks out a little.
fyanimaldiversity: Indian Peafowl (Pavo cristatus)
- The iconic plumage and colors of the normal wild type male displaying for the attention of the less colorful female. I found a really nice resource for identifying female peahens here, so I don’t have to figure out how to fit all the ladies in. [x]
- A darker bird, the purple morph has a darker blue-purple sheen on the body and eyes of the train. The iridescence fades fairly quickly as the tail feathers age, turning them a duller brown color [x]
- Dark, glossy, greenish bodied with a grey-brown train, the bronze isn’t the most colorful bird, but still very pretty.[x]
- Cameos lack iridescence all together. Males start off with this darker brown coloration, and are said to fade a few shades during the year from the sun. His train is a light tan, and he exhibits the white eyed mutation, meaning the “eyes” or ocelli in his tail feathers are white.[x]
- Instead of brown, the charcoal leans more towards greyscale. The body is a very dark grey, almost black in color, and the tail is grey. Like the cameo, this morph also has no iridescence. [x]
- The peach variety is aptly named, since the base color and train is a light peachy-tan. Combined with the white wings, it makes for a very light and subdued looking animal.[x]
- The first pattern mutations found, the black-shouldered trait replaces the normally barred feathers on the wing (like the male on the left) with solid, dark feathers. This mutation can be combined with color mutations, like purple black-shoulders, charcoal black shoulder, etc. [x]
- A flashy pied, white markings on his head, throat, wings, and belly. Like the black shoulder (and really all of the pattern mutations), there are many color+pattern combinations. [x]
- Birds with higher amounts of white, created by mixing the pied, white, and white eyed mutation, are called silver pied.[x]
- White peafowl are not an uncommon sight, and might be the second most familiar morph behind the wild type. [x]
f*ck yeah peacocks <3
SORRY YOU GUYS I said a few minutes and then got a call oh look the car’s ready at the shop, gotta go run out and fetch it before they close in 40min D8
Turned out for the best in the end, because in my initial attempt at photos Lancelot was really wriggly and was really dead set on being a necksnake so that sortof… cut the photoshoot to a halt. I had to put him away and he finally settled down when I got back from car business, and I got to take all these other wonderful photos.
So yay, lots and lots of Lancelot.
