You do have a cinnamon male - the tone of the cinnamon varies just like a grey varies in its tone of grey

here is mine - granted he is a Cinnamon Pearl But he's lost his pearls so he looks like a normal cinnamon male

When he was about 7 months old



and at a year old

Interesting! I've read that about cinnamon's but I never knew that about grey's. So, how can you tell the difference between the two when the color comes out looking grey, like in Cocoa's case?

mainly in his case, because the very 1st pic is of a cinnamon, They can't go from a Cinnamon mutation to a grey mutation

if you go here, Scroll down to the list of Mutations hit Normal Grey and look through them there is one that looks almost black

I've never seen a grey that dark before. Thanks for the quick lesson in mutations. :)

And thank you Solace! I think he's stunning too. :D
