Hi, I just wanted some advice. This 8 mo th old Bengal is advertised as silver (his parents are a rosettes silver and a marbled brown). But to me he looks very light... Almost seal mink-ish. What do you guys think!? Thank you all for your input in advance.

I'm guessing the first two pictures are of the parents? The remaining pictures look more like a snow bengal than a silver, but with pictures, it's difficult to tell.

Looks like a silver with tarnishing to me.... Quite attractive. I'm not an expect in colour genetics in bengals but I know it depends what the parents carry. Sometimes it is impossible to get certain colours from certain matings. Eyes are wrong colour for a snow.

Color in photographs is really difficult! The eyes looked bluish to me, but maybe that's just my color perception and I am color blind when it comes to certain colors. LOL The kitty is beautiful regardless.

Possibly a seal mink? Whatever, the markings and color really appeal to me.

Your cat looks very much like one of mine. Raj is a silver with tarnish. His eyes were that green-blue color when he was a kitten and they are now sort of a greenish gold. Here's a photo of him when he was a bit younger so you can see the similarities, plus bonus pic of some bengal bellies.
