The coal color, which does not yet have its own standard, is interesting in a bright and clearly outlined black pattern. There are practically no blurry spots in the patterns; they stand out distinctly against the pale background of the body.
The color of the melanist is the darkest of all bengals in terms of background color, since the chocolate base darkened to black. This Bengal color is recognized as extremely spectacular, for which Bengal cats of this color are valued expensively.
The blue color is the most exotic for today: the wool is similar to silver, but visually there is a pleasant soft tint of blue, smokiness. This subspecies, recently officially registered, is still the last of those that have an approved standard for color and pattern. Blue colors of bengals, valuable for their unusual exterior, are still few in number.

Phasing in bengal cat kittens
The thin, rare and light hairy fluffy coat that appears in kittens immediately after birth is a natural defense in the wild. Bright spots can give out a forest animal kitten to its predatory enemies. A peculiar means of disguise in babies is preserved in generations that are no longer hybrids. Growing up, kittens get rid of wool, covering spots or stains. Against the light basic background, the kittens have less phasing cover. By age, when the kittens pass into the young growth stage, their attractive “leopard” appears more clearly. There are cases of the reappearance of phasing wool if kittens were born already with a camouflage coat. If temporary hairs do not fall out, the Bengal kitten is rejected from among purebred.

The variety of colors of bengals is understandable: this is a young breed that carries the genes of not only a leopard Asian cat, but also a whole list of domestic breeds – American Shorthair, Egyptian Mau, Abyssinian, etc. Each species brought its own genes, and in mixed bindings it always gives amazing results . There will be nothing strange that many of the now non-standard Bengal colors will be recognized in felinology in the future.

Considering the fact that the hair of animals from this cat family usually has a beautiful shine noticeable in sunlight, the attention of professional breeders and home-tailed lovers to the new breed is understandable.
