When I rehomed mom and got her to the vet and found out she was pregnant I got back in touch with her previous owner to let her know and ask about dad. She claimed all her gliders had lineage and nothing to worry about with Joey's in that sense and told me dad was probably going to be the ringtail mosaic she was housed with.

QUESTION: WHAT COLORATION COULD WE EXPECT THE BABIES TO BE? I don't understand much about the genetics part but mom is a whiteface so I know babies should be whiteface with that being a dominant gene. As far as I can tell they are but that's all I can tell. Will they show any mosaic traits later on?

Both white-face and mosaic are dominant genes, which means that only one copy is needed for the trait to show, but it also means that the parent can pass down either the morph copy or the "wild" copy of the gene each time.

So basically the joeys can be either :

* standart grey
* mosaic
* white-face
* mosaic & white-face at the same time
