Brown Bengals are still the most popular colour, possibly because they most resemble a wild cat, and they remain our favourite here at Angeldust Bengals. They were the first colour to be recognised by TICA in 1983. There are a huge variety of shades, ranging from sandy to cold browns to sorrel to rufus reds. No matter what the shade, the brown Bengal should have a beautifully contrasted coat, with markings standing out from the base colour. Whatever the shade of brown, all brown Bengals will have a black tail tip.
Eye colour in brown Bengals can be green, gold or copper.
Though brown is the easiest colour to produce, as the gene for brown colour is dominant, the skill of the breeder is required to produce desirable contrast and defined markings. Thus, the best brown Bengals are produced by breeders who are passionate about this colour and use their knowledge of genetics to create amazing looking cats. As it can be hard to keep contrast in the warm coloured browns as the Bengal ages, it is also important that the breeder understands their lines, so that they are working with Bengals that will keep their vibrancy of pattern and will not fade in tone.
Brown Bengals can be spotted (rosettes are larger spots) or marbled, and can also come in a charcoal variation.
