Examples of Mutations ?

Postby Goldentiger » Fri Jun 27, 2014 2:43 pm

Hello, I would like to see examples of mutations that affect and change the facial features.

Until now I only see examples of changes in pigmentation or aberrations. So if anyone has photos of mutations in the face of an animal (but which are not aberrations) I like to see them.

Thank you.

HI ! :D I have noticed that Persian cats are very flat face and nose, and have changed a lot in a short time, it's true.

How is this obtained?

A mutation caused them to have this type of face?

Or were selecting cats with a little more flat face, gradually to get one with a very flat face?
