As stated within the Skins section of the Appearance page, a lion's Skin refers to the colour of their nose and paw pads. Some skins are very common, while others are rare and can only be passed down through breeding.

You may be interested in seeing how you can acquire a sniffer and toe beans of your particular tone. Perhaps you may even just want to preview how a skin looks!

When breeding, the offspring of a pairing has a potential of three different skin colours that it can inherit. There is a 10% chance it will inherit the father's skin, a 10% chance to inherit the mother's, and an 80% chance to inherit the skin assigned to its base.

For example, breeding a Nacarat-based lion with White skin to a Nacarat-based lion with Blue skin can result in cubs with either Blue, Tawny, or White skins.

These skins can be found on rolled kings and NCLs. They can also be applied using a Skin Changer.
