Re: Need help identifying

I feel like True Columbian BCCs would be pretty well documented since you never really see them in captivity in fact I don't think I've ever seen one other than in old pics. But I really don't know. Please post pics we so we can help. Some people claim there is no Columbian BCC localities.

Re: Need help identifying

Shape of the saddles and color of the tail is the best indication of BCC or BCI. True red tails have red, not orange or brown colored tails. Also have more pointed saddle markings, BCI's have more square saddles.
As Daniel said, pics would help, but you need to make a few more posts on the forum to upload pics.

Re: Need help identifying

Lighting isn't so good to tell the coloration but it looks BCI to me. There is always the chance for it to be crossed with BCC but I'm confident in saying I see BCI influence.
