26 Animals Famous For Their Unusual Fur Markings


Animals come in all different shapes, sizes, breeds, and temperaments. They also come with many different kinds of markings. Rarely, an animal is born with markings so unique they appear too good to be true. For instance, the penguin pictured above was amazingly born with a perfect white heart front and center on his chest.

Wild or in captivity, animals with truly unique fur coats are likely unaware of their distinct beauty. After all, penguins don’t value the shape of a heart like us humans do.

Hearts are not the only shape taking animal fur by storm, the mustacheis another popular marking found on felines, dogs, and other furry friends across the planet. Eyebrows and other well-known shapes also take form out of different colored fur, including some rather inappropriate shapes.

You can breed your pet over and over and never get a puppy outlined in hearts. Not only are these incredible animal markings rare, but they also have a lot to do with genetics. Just like the color of your hair or the shape of your eyes, animal markings are formed based on their genetic coding.unusual-animal-markings-52

Dogs that come from patchy parents, or rather animals with multi-colored coats, are the most likely bunch to be born wearing fun patterns. If a mom or dad have unique markings of their own, they are more likely to pass this trait down to their child. Here are 26 of the coolest/funniest animal markings you have ever seen!
