Mosaic Sugar Gliders

Mosaic sugar gliders come in endless patterens, showing different amounts of white pigment on thier bodies. The patterns and color are random, but that makes them more unique. 

Mosaicism involves the presence of two or more populations of cells with different genotypes in on individual, who has developed from a single fertilized egg.

In sugar gliders, mosaicism is either  present or not present. It is co-dominant and can never be recessive or heterozygous. For example: A mosaic parent and a classic grey parent have a 50% chance of producing a mosaic offspring and a 50% chance of producing a classic colored offspring. 

Classic colored joeys cannot be "carriers" of the mosaic gene. Platinum sugar gliders can both be mosaic and platinum at the same time, making them True Platinum Mosaics (called TPM). Typically, a TPM has a white "flash" mosic marking on its neck and a white or ring tail.Leucisticsugar gliders can be both leucistic and platinum at the same time. They will be completely white but mayor may not have a little color on thier ears.
