Black Beauties, similar to the Classic color, have extremely dark charcoal markings. They usually have black knuckles and some will have a dark belly as opposed to the white belly. Black beauty (BB) seems to run in families, but is neither dominant or recessive. However, when pairing a BB X BB it is more frequent that the offspring will themselves be Black Beauties than classic gray.
Black Beauties can be seen on many different colored sugar gliders. Classic gray pairings have had Black Beauty offspring, although usually not as dark as when selectively breeding for this trait. It is common to breed a BB X BFBB when desiring BB and BFBB offspring. This pairing reduces the risk of producing melanistic offspring.
