Yarra Valley Bengals

Spots and Dots!

The spotted variety of the Bengal can take on many differences in patterns. A spotted Bengal can have a solid spot of one colour, or we can have a rosetted Bengal. A rosetted Bengal is still spotted, but the spots have two colours to them. Usually there is a dark spot of either brown or black, and then a kind of rust or orange shading inside or around the spot, creating a rosette like you would see on a wild cat like a jaguar. The photos below are all of brown Bengals, but you can have the same markings on any colour of Bengal.
