Speckling by Matriarchs-Haunt
Bullet; White Speckles are dark freckles that appear over the ketucari's body.
Bullet; White In your ketucari's genotype, speckling is denoted by the letters "nSpc" (heterozygous) or "SpcSpc" (homozygous).
Bullet; White In its heterozygous form, speckling has a pass rate of 60%. Homozygous speckling has a 85% pass rate.

Color and Shape

Overall, be sure not to make speckling spots too uniform. They should be random in their grouping.

Speckling must be a darker color of your chosen base, with a minor deviation in hue. It can also be a fully desaturated color of the base, as long as it is darker. Speckling may be pure black.

These colors would be acceptable for this base color. They are either a darker version of the base, or a darker and desaturated version of the base. The last color on the right shows a minor deviation in hue, and is slightly more yellow than the base itself. Notice that this small change is not overbearing.

These colors would be unacceptable for speckling. They are either lighter than the base coat or have too drastic a hue shift.

Here are the minimum and maximum sizes for speckling spots.

Since it can appear anywhere on the body, there is no range for speckling. It must be immediately noticeable in the design.
