Abstract

Phenotypic parallelism has been established with similar aberrations of coat color in sables and northern fur seals with known fur color mutations in American mink. On the basis of the similarities in the phenotypic variability of the coat color in these species of distant origin, we can imply the presence of specific coloring markers of the gene component, which ensures adaptation to extreme environmental conditions.
