Coat color may be any standard color broken by small patches of white forming a pleasing pattern. While a collar is acceptable, patches of the base color within the spotting, forming a mottled pattern are desirable. A variegated appearance is desirable: large patches of white are less desirable. Up to 75% of the gerbil can be white and the patches do not need to have clear edges.
Shall be black, dark, ruby, or pink to correspond with standard color, large and bright.
Shall be covered with short, soft fine fur of the standard coloring.
Should be of standard coloring and/or white.
Four white feet; toenails shall be neutral (i.e., clear and without pigment).
More than 75% white is a serious fault; off colored coat; toenails not of the correct color.
