Classic colored sugar gliders are gray with a black dorsal stripe. The under belly is usually white. Their coloring is striking and a favorite to many. Also called the "wild type" or "standard", it the most common color of a sugar glider in various shades of grey, black and white
Platinum sugar gliders have a light silver (powdered) body with a light dorsal stripe and markings. The three original lines of platinums are Haley, Silverbelle and Chance platinum. To breed a platinum sugar glider, the joey must have at least one platinum allele to display the color. Platinums can carry the Leucistic gene, but Leucistics do not carry the Platinum gene. Platinum sugar gliders can be both the mosaic and platinum at the same time, making them True Platinum Mosaics (TPM)
Black Face Black Beauties, (commonly called BFBB in the Sugar Glider community), have an overall "black face". They lack eye rings around the eyes, and only the noseband is visible. The lack of eye rings is what gives off the "black face" look! The whole face may appear dark or the area around the eyes very light in contrast to a very dark face.
Mosaic sugar gliders come in endless patterns, showing different amounts of black, white and grey pigment on their bodies. The patterns and color are random, but that just makes them more unique!
Cremeino sugar gliders have a cream colored or reddish crème colored fur, brown to red dorsal stripe & markings, and deep ruby eyes. Gliders with a certain look were bred together and cremeinos began to be reproduced. This color does not appear in the wild and is a recessive gene. To show phenotypically, a glider must have two cremeino alleles. Having Cremeino in the background will increase the odds of producing a red or strawberry glider.
Leucistic sugar gliders have white fur with black eyes. They also have very clear, or translucent, ears. This color is either completely displayed, or not present. In other words, two alleles must be present for this recessive gene to be phenotypically (physically) displayed. Example: Breeding any 100% LEUCISTIC HET (heterozygous) to another 100% LEUCISTIC HET (heterozygous) can produce Leucistic offspring (LEU + LEU alleles).
