Ebony chinchillas are black. Their bellies, ears ( grayish black ) , and eyes are black. Some look more smokey with grey on them. They come in 4 shades. Light ebony, Medium Ebony, Dark Ebony, and Extra dark ebony.
The Ebony mutation is one of the favorite mutations around. Their color can range from a light gray to a solid black. Only one parent needs to be carrying the ebony gene in order for it to show in the offspring. Heterozygous Ebonies can have a gray belly, not a white like in the Standard. The Homozygous Ebony should have an even black colored coat, including the belly. Strong veiling and a blue hue are important. It also seems that the Ebony chinchilla will take longer to reach his/her potential, up to 2 years while most chins will reach maturity between 8 and 14 months of age.
