Both in our country and abroad, both standard nutrients and color are actively bred. And, if we talk about breeding for the purpose of obtaining fur, the colored ones are more popular, as the skins of these breeds are valued much higher and are more popular

The classification of the coat color of nutria includes ten mutations (having deviations from the standard color) and seven combined species of nutria. The latter are the result of long-term efforts of breeders, as well as random genetic “solutions.” Pearl nutria are just such

This rock was obtained by reducing lemon or snow nutrients (which, in turn, are heirs of beige) with pastel

The wool of these animals is heterogeneous: the covering hairs are grayish white, sometimes almost white and monophonic throughout their length. Downy hair has a brown color on the spine – the closer to the abdomen, the wool is lighter. If the individual is very light, then she has a fluffy beige, and she herself in many ways resembles a white Italian

Immediately after the birth of puppies, the nutria of the pearl breed have a darker coloration than their parents. Coating hair is a little lighter than the underarm. With age, the young acquire a pleasant color of pearl color

Like other color representatives of nutria, pearl, with rare exceptions, multiply perfectly. True, experts strongly recommend not to overdo and breed them in moderation

By the way, they do not advise to multiply “in themselves” pearl nutria too. Because in this case their fertility is significantly reduced (up to 25 percent). If you cross this species with Pastel, then in half the cases the puppies will turn out pearly

Usually in the litter of pearl nutria there are 4-5 calves each. Offspring of tailed animals are born with high viability. And, if you follow all the rules and use the recommended methods of keeping and feeding, the food grows quickly, gaining weight, developing well and subsequently yielding high-quality skins. The last in the wear almost nothing inferior to the mink, and the rabbit exceeds ten times. The fur of the pearl nutria shiny, thick, warm… And, according to experienced nutrients, the more in the diet of this animal fish (fish meal), the better the quality of fur

An adult individual of pearl of nutria weighs from five to seven kilograms. Individual males-heroes reach 15-16 kilograms, but these are the record holders. Samochki lighter than their “men” per cent on 15

The trunk of the nutria is 45-90 cm, of which 30-40 cm is occupied by the tail. It is scaly – scales of dark gray color, and if not for rare, coarse hair, it could be called bald. Fortunately, you can not say about the rest of the body

In addition to high fur qualities, pearl nutria are famous for their excellent meat, which is considered a delicacy and something like a rabbit. One individual gives about two to three kilograms of tasty, healthy, dietary meat

Recently, a growing number of people who want to try themselves in breeding nutria. After all, this is an exciting and, importantly, profitable business. Especially when it comes to colored rocks, in particular pearl

Providing proper conditions (cleanliness of the contents, suitable food, availability of water in the nutrient habitat) and knowing the elementary secrets of reproduction, one can obtain a permanent source of valuable fur and delicious meat. And yet – a lot of positive emotions from communicating with funny tailed animals
