Mr. J. Smith (EACC Vice President)
*Note the now National Agouti Cavy Club originally known as the English Agouti Cavy Club*
Due to the lack of Agouti's from Southern exhibitors at North London Agouti Club a pair of Golden Agoutis was offered to the first 3 new Southern members of the EACC.
New Southern Members
Two new English Agouti Cavy Club 'Southern Area' members.
The Grey Agouti is believed to be the first colour of Agouti Cavy, this was first seen shown in the late 20th Century.
Despite thoughts the Grey became the Silver this ISN'T true!
The Silver came along in the late 1910's and in the 1920's records show both Greys & Silvers being shown. The Silver however proved more popular, hence soon saw the demise of the Grey.
The Golden Agouti was the second colour of Agouti, shortly after the Grey in the late 19th Century.
