and about the whole pelting thing...correct me if I'm wrong...isn't that the whole concept behind the breeding/mutations industry? Like, people started looking for different "colors" of chinchillas for different colored chinchilla coats? I'm not sure where I heard this, or if it's entirely accurate..but I heard that the trend in what colors to aim for trickles down from the trends in the pelting industry.
Please someone shed some insight on this as I have really no idea, and would like to know more....if it is possible to do without starting a debate. I'm really just trying to expand my knowledge.
