    As requested, I will post pictures of my little boy here...

    Info first... He is considered an F2B. That means he is a second generation Savannah (F2) and the 'B' means he is a product of a SV x SV cross, not an outcross (that would be an A). His maternal Grandfather is an African Serval- I will find Youtube videos and share them of him as well. His Daddy is my show kitty and his Momma is a gorgeous long legged girl I wanted from the moment I saw her first pictures online- about this age, I think...

    Okay, so he was born after a very long labor- 12 hours- and he was born not breathing. It was a very scary beginning- took a good 15 minutes or so before he was breathing- lots of work and swearing on my part, but that first breath was a miracle! And I've been in love ever since! I swear- if I wasn't up to my eyeballs in cat-related debt, I'd keep him!

    These pictures are pretty much in chronological order- from his birth to now...

              OMG!!!!! I love him..Some day I will have one.

              I could watch that big guy play in and eat those fish all day..:BigSmile:
              Didn't I read some place the the males are sterile? How do you breed them if they are sterile?

              Sooooooooooooooooo CUTE!!! :ThumbsUp:

              The first few generations of males are steral, femals have to be bred with further generations like f5 males... We really want an big f2 male, and will have one as soon as we have more room and find a good breeder!!!

                            Uuuh... Go to Youtube and search Dagger and Serval- you'll see him there. I'm not sure why it pulls up for some people and not others.

                            Oh my gosh, Dagger is GORGEOUS! I just love, love, love all of the markings. I would love to have him running around me house, I think! And the little kitten is adorable as well, I can't wait to see all of those spots on him when he's older!

                              There is a lady trying to cross SV x Sphynx, but the problem from what I understand is once you get to the lower SV generations (show gens)- the spots are not skin deep. They ARE skin deep on my baby- you can see them on his tummy, even where it is pretty bare. But if he was an F5 or F6, I guess you wouldn't.

                              I got a bit of flack my first cat show when I said I owned both SVs and Sphynxes- the breeders immediately ASSumed I was the lady crossing these two breeds. I love both breeds, but I don't want to cross them- LOL!

                              I can see where the SV markings would be awesome cool on a Sphynx but if crossing them doesn't benefit either breed then why do it? Does she just want to create another breed??

                              I don't want to say what I think about it because she's on a list I'm on...

                              I like my Sphynxes- Sphynxes and my SVs as SVs.

                              Oh- and you so don't want a Serval, for the most part. If the thought of a little bit of cat spray grosses you out- Servals don't tinkle- they spray like a firehouse is attached to their butts. It is horrible.

                              NOW, I love Servals and when the kids are grown and moved out, we will probably have one if they aren't completely illegal everywhere by that time- but we will need an outdoor enclosure so the Serval can be indoors and out :)

                              Haha... Yeah, they will eat fish. We learned that the hard way- a few betas ended up missing! (Our SV- not Servals LOL)
