  TIBCS: About Bengals
The brown spotted tabby (leopard spotted) Bengals have dark spots on a lighter ground color ranging from gray or tawny to sorrel to golden, very rufused (bright orange) and to a rich mahogony.
Bengals are relatively large-boned, shorthaired cats with males averaging from 10 to 15 pounds and females usually smaller.
This might be due to a visual undesirable trait such as a spot of white color on the throat or groin (referred to as a locket) or a genetic defect that might put offspring at risk for ill health.
