Beige Sapphire Chinchillas

In 2014 I was curious and paired a Beige sc with a Beige sc as I had never seen a Beige Sapphire in person. It did make them slightly bluer but only under a show light. It also changed the look of their eyes.

I've recently been told by a couple of people that the chinchilla they had purchased was beige sapphire. Unless they have the odd split eyes, they are only sapphire carriers. It does not make any difference if they are your pet but if you are going to breed make sure you get a complete pedigree from the breeder when working with recessives.
