The Board of Directors has adopted a standard for judging Angora chinchillas. Because Tamara Tucker has been developing this mutation for many many years and she has the most experience working with them, her knowledge was vital in developing this judging standard. All judges should make themselves aware of this standard as more angoras are sure to be shown in the next show season.
COLOR – A particular color of fur should be distinct and clear, like any other chinchilla, void of off color, dullness or muddiness.
SIZE – Size is the quality of the breeding of the animal. The angora’s appearance may be larger due to the length
of their fur. A well bred angora should be as large as a good non-angora standard animal.
