Because he is slowly turning from black to white! It sped up a lot during his last molt. I'm thinking He's going to be more white than black by the time his molt ends! Vinny is only about 15 months old. Can you imagine him at 4 years old! With the way he's going, I think he'll be all white by then! Vinny as a baby- Vinny last january- Vinny about a month ago Vinny about a week ago Here's Vinny just yesterday... so speckly already! He can be my ducky, it don't matter if he's black or white!
