Here are some additional photos. #3D and #4L are unique. #3D really looks like black velvet in person. Look at the interesting colors and patterns on #4L.

Yes, zebra swallowtail cats are quite variable, but I've never seen a velvety black one!

It's wonderful that they're all doing so well!

Thanks guys. It really depends upon the camera angle in regards to how velvety the black guy looks. Here, I was focused in on the one in front and you can see more of the velvety texture that I was trying to describe. In other shots, the black guys doesn't look as furry. Elisabeth gave some good rearing instructions, and I have kept them alive so far. I'm not outta the woods yet though. I won't rest until they pupate. :o)
