Camo is a marking that adds hard-edged, darker colored patches on the beasts’ body.
These patches will always resemble the patterns found on any type of giraffe, which is why there are many different ways to design this marking!
Naturally, Camo has a lot of breaks between each patch, however, holes within those patches are not allowed.
It is also one of the few markings that will always be below all other markings. There are two exceptions, however: Pangare and Sable may be covered by Camo.
This marking was inspired by the unique patterns shown on different kinds of giraffes, feel free to take them as inspiration if you have troubles designing your beast!
Relevant to: Base
Can be white: No
Hides other genes: No
Quick Facts Guide
Camo is relevant to and will always be darker than the base coat color of the beast.
Camo must have a hard edge.
There is no real right or wrong designing the patterns. As long the the “spots” are big enough and resemble the look of a giraffe the design is good to go.
A small reminder that there are many types of giraffes with a lot of differences in how the edges of their patterns look! If you are unsure just use Google and search for some examples.
Camo has no distinct minimum range, but must be present in a noticeable way on the beast.
Feel free to search for this marking in our CaveSpeaker gallery to get some inspiration or a better grasp of the marking.
However, be careful of old designs as they might be illegal by now due to previous rule changes!
Please do not just copy existing designs either, as those are the property of their designer!
