What is the Charcoal color in the Bengal ?

The Bengal breed was created by hybridization between the domestic cats (Felis sylvestris catus) and the leopard cat or ALC in English (Prionailurus bengalensis).
The idea of this cross was to introduce to the domestic cat the spots in the coat of the Leopard Cat.
Some Bengals have a darker coat with a darker face mask and a darker dorsal band called Charcoal.
The Bengals with a Charcoal coat are in demand.
The charcoal pattern is the result of the combination of the ALC (Apb) allele and the non-agouti allele of the domestic cat (a).
A Charcoal cat is therefore Apb/a.
The Charcoal test also makes it possible to detect a very rare allele, named A2. This allele is found in Bengal and Savannah.
The effect of this allele on the color of the coat (phenotype) is not yet known. However, if your cat has the A2 allele, we’ll let you know.
