My bimac has a strange thing here. I read the threads
that said what kind of bimac you have and it all depended on the blue
eye rings just below their eyes. My bimac has one that has a closed
chain and the other is broken at the bottom of the circle, So what kind
of bimac do i have? is it a cross breed or just a fluke or am I just
confused on how to figure out what kind of bimac I have? Thanks for any
info you can give me

Im not sure but now she is big enough to really see what is on her and when videoing her this weekend it was amazing that I saw it. She was very hungry and we were getting a vifeo of her eating from my hand, and then watching her eat. Thats when i notice that they were different. So I studied her for hours trying to make sure it wasnt my imagination, and its not, she does have a complete chain on one side and a very distinct broken chain on the other side. Still is way cool :rainbow:
