Chimera is a marking mutation where a beast has two (2) different phenotypes at the same time. The Chimera patches can come in many shapes or sizes and be either soft or hard edged, as long as both phenotypes are clearly present in the design.
Other color or marking mutations may affect either both sides or only one (1) of the two (2). Either way is fine!
All markings that are present in the phenotypes are mandatory and have to be added to the design. Be careful that markings belonging to only one (1) of the phenotypes do not cross into the area(s) of the other phenotype!

Quick Facts Guide
Chimera can either be soft or hard edged. The type of edge must be the same throughout the whole design and cannot switch from soft to hard and vice versa in the middle of the design or between different patches!
Combinations with other markings
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!
