Arrow Silly Question

Been wondering about Neytiri's nose spot. When she was born, it wasn't there, and then when she was 5 weeks old (when I got her) it showed up. Then it went away and now its back.
5 weeks

11 weeks

started showing again... in june. when she had her babies.

Now it's all the way back


Thinking hormones ? First when she was growing ...then when she was pregnant? I'm probably wrong

I've noticed that the position of the mask on the face tends to shift as they grow and their muzzle lengthens, broadens, etc. Vendetta had very visible cheek patches (the kind used to classify WB vs. Algerian) when she was very young, which were gone at 5-6 weeks, then came back around 8-9 weeks, and are now full-fledged as if she'd had them the whole time. It looks like something similar with Neytiri, maybe with a little bit of fading going on too.

I love her little nose spot but I'm just wondering why it changes so much

Their masks tend to do that! They fade, and sometimes darken back up, like your girl. It usually starts there by the base of the nose. Totally normal though, and it'll probably fade drastically once she gets older.

No question is silly, that how we all gather knowledge through information I find the same as LizardGirl, there masks can fade with time. Sometimes the baby masks are black and then they lighten up to dark grey I find. sometimes not
